About the Poem
As a mother gets older, she needs to realize that life is changing. This sometimes makes her feel like she wants to hang on to the life that was.
I Must Let Go
One is gone,
another will soon be.
life has changed.
Why do I push when
I want to pull?
but I must let go.
As gray appears,
I see life slip away.
Strength is reduced,
let me hold on and never, never let go.
