A Time To Let Go


A Time To Let Go
Sometimes you find out what you wanted
Isn't really what you need
And the dream in all its promise
Was never meant to be
All your hope and desperation
Won't make it like it was
And you believe the pain will never end
Believe me in time it does
You've gotta know when love is over
You've gotta learn to carry on
And with the world upon your shoulders
You walk away when hope is gone
When your golden road has reached the end
You find the strength to start again you know
There's a time for love
A time for letting go
When you're standin' tall tomorrow
Looking back at yesterday
Through the memory of your sorrow
How the dawn was so far away
You'll be far beyond the shadow
Where hearts can learn to shine
And you'll realize the endless night
Was only a moment in time
You've gotta know when love is over
You've gotta learn to carry on
And with the world upon your shoulders
You walk away when hope is gone
When your golden road has reached the end
You find the strength to start again you know
There's a time for love
A time for letting go
The night is long the night is cold
With nothing to believe in
Just hold on, 'cause life goes on
Your new day is waiting
Let go and let it begin
You've gotta know when love is over
You've gotta learn to carry on
And with the world upon your shoulders
You find the strength when hope is gone
When your golden road has reached the end
You find the strength to start again you know
There's a time for love
A time for letting go
To let go...doesn't mean to stop caring
it means I can't do it for someone else
It's not to cut myself off
It's the realization that I can't control another
To let go...is not to enable
but to allow learning from natural consequences
Is to admit powerlessness
Which means the outcome is not in my hands
To let go...is not to try to change or blame another
I can only change myself
Is not to care for
but to care about
To let go...is not to fix
but to be supportive
Is not to judge
but to allow another to be a human being
To let go...is not to be in the middle arranging the outcome
but to allow others to effect their own outcome
Is not to be protective
it is to permit another to face reality
To let go...is not to deny, but to accept
Is not to nag, scold, or argue
but to search out my own
shortcomings and to correct them
To let go...is not to adjust everything to my desires
but to take each day as it comes
Is not to criticize or regulate anyone
but to try to become whatever dream I can be
To let go...is not to regret the past
but to grow and live for the future
Is to fear less and love more
And I do "Love You"
So I will "Let You Go"
