Hey Joe It Is Time To Let You Go

Updated on March 4, 2010

As I Pick Up Your Shirt That You Loved So Much

I know you are here with me

I know it is time to let you go

I have been holding on

To everything you had and once owned

Trying to bring back you

And keep from being sad

We had fun in the times you were sick

I didn't get to know you sooner

We could of hung out like a son inlaw and a father do

Just shooting the breeze

Laughing at life we have lived

You telling me stories about your daughter I never knew

Things about your wife and your life

Things that are so special to you

If I could stop time

To listen and pray

What a wonderful day it would be

I would have a friend to help me clean

When we stop

We could imagine life

Just like we want it to be

Dream the unthinkable and accomplish the undone

      Darlene I think we never do what we are capable of doing.We get side tracked with unimportant things that occupy are time and love.I try to spend more time with all who love because love is the only thing I have found to be so glorious!

      This made me cry, in a good way, but this is so true, we need to give fully in the moments we have together. Awesome hub, and it makes one thing about life...
