Let him go,
Always let him go.
Suffer edict; irresistible you will be.
You love him more,
More than you believe he will ever.
Days and nights pass,
Seasons, years may pass;
His path determined – unable to let you go.
You will know, you will KNOW –
Do the winds direct?
Are you ready?
Time to dive into the Abyss,
Both feet, hands,
More so the heart and head.
Never look back, never doubt;
He will KNOW and treasure you the more;
Up or down, bad and good.
The love you give
Will be but a shred,
A mere star in the galaxy of his ardor.
Never look back, never doubt.
Silently taught by you, Mom and Dad;
Lived by me,
Passed down to Russell and Rachel
