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?
Hold on,
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.
