Let It Go
What can I say to you who don’t trust anymore? Who don’t believe in love anymore?
What can I say that will get your heart to at least consider the words of my heart?
What can I say to ease your fears, to put a stop to those inner tears that often appear in your sensitive, yet firm eyes?
I looked inside you, into that chamber that is guarded by a wall, so tall it hides your heart.
I looked through that fortress you built because of mistrust, nurtured because of love illusions and people wanting you for the wrong reasons...
I looked under the smile that comes from your beautiful face and I beheld a queen who no longer trusts, no longer cares if people give her the love stare.
What can I say that will penetrate into that belief, which you have convinced yourself to hold on tightly to, even when true love is looking right at you?
I looked inside because heaven sent me to you…
Sent me because God knows that I understand your concerns, fears and the reasons for all those hidden tears.
Let it go… Free your soul from the pain of yesterday’s love games.
Let it go… All those thoughts and memories that invade your privacy until the floodgates are unleashed… Put them to rest.
Let it go… True Love seeks a landing place near your precious heart.
True Love is waiting and anticipating your return to Cupid’s garden.
Love is supposed to heal not kill.
Let it go it's the only way you will grow...

Very beautiful ... let it go! Yes, the past is past, and none are guaranteed a tomorrow, so there is just this day to love and love others.
Voted up ++++ and sharing
God bless, Faith Reaper
