"Let Go"

Went back the other day and found 80+ songs I'd written. One of these days I'd like to make an album (maybe after I get a guitar and can play it well enough). Here's the most recent. I've been working on the piano piece for it in my head.

(verse 1)
Hanging on the edge
Holdin' on for dear life
I thought that this could work
Seemed so right at the time

(verse 2)
All my wishful thinking
Led me to the end
...of my rope... of my reason.
But then I heard a voice:

(chorus)
“Let go, let go --
My child, let go.
What lies ahead
You do not know,
But take My hand.
My child, let go
Though you cannot see.
Release your dreams.
Let go – hold on to Me.”

(verse 3)
Oh, where did I go wrong?
I was dreaming for so long.
Now I'm awake and see
Just how foolish I can be.

(verse 4)
I refused to release
When I know that I should have.
You had to pry my hands
From the death-grip I was in.

“Let go, let go --
My child, let go.
What lies ahead
You do not know,
But take My hand.
My child, let go
Though you cannot see.
Release your dreams.
Let go – hold on to Me.”
