"Let Go My Hand"

Zelda May

When you were just a baby, I held you in my arms and made a promise to you, to keep you safe from harm.
I said that I would love you and try my whole life through to do the very best I could, to take good care of you.
My time with you was special, and I am truly blessed. Of all the treasures in the world, I know that mine are best.
You filled my days with sunshine, you are my pride and joy. No gift that God could give me could ever please me more.
Our lives weren't always easy, we had our share of trouble. But never once throughout the years, did I regret the struggle.
I watched you grow and go your way, to follow your own plan. In your own way you told me, "Oh, please, let go my hand."
As years went by so swiftly and time slipped by so fast, you boldly met your future, and let go of the past.
I watched your life unfolding, and felt so pleased, you see -- for each step forward that you took was a step likewise for me.
And now my task is over, I tend your needs no more. but yet I keep you in my heart and will forevermore.
I'll daily watch your progress, my pride in you will show. I'll always wish the best for you as older we both grow.
For all too soon you'll know the pain of having to let go. I've said goodbye to loved ones too, not many years ago.
When my time comes to leave this earth, you must understand. Don't weep for, I'm in God's care.
Just please let go my hand.
Love, Mama
