It’s been over thirty years since you died,
but in soul-time,
it was only yesterday.

It’s time for me to let go;
I’ve carried my hate
for too many years.

The calcified place in my heart
has taken up too much room.
It has weighed me down,
taken away precious time in my life.

In order to fly,
I need to jettison that lump.

There will be times
my memories will flash forward,
the pain threatening to absorb me.

But in the light of day,
the beasts fade,
and I use my energy
to create beauty and life.

Death and memories
won’t overshadow my sun,
anymore.

Though I’ll never be able to forgive you,
I still loved you.
I’m ready
to say Goodbye.
