My Daily Letter To “You” #8

Of letting go…


Morning comes and off it goes.

Like people come and(ouch!) they go.

Some, for a time, just passed my way.

But few are meant to stay.

Life’s lesson of letting go remains with me.

And of coming home…


We are too small to understand

The mysteries of life.

We are but specks of God’s

Infinite creations.

We depart to arrive;

We leave to come home.

‘Tis great to wake up in the morning,

Especially when you’re home.


What is it that’s hard for you to let go?

And when are you coming home?

I wish you well ~ Jeques

  2. jeques

    Caught between coming and going. If you are single and have not started a family yet, when you leave you’re not really sure that you’re leaving; yes, maybe you’re going, to find your own home.

    That’s what I feel when I wrote this. The line “especially when your home” could mean somebody wanting to wake up in the morning at home, or someone longing to wake up with somebody home.

    “We depart to arrive; we leave to come home” is the title of my painting.

    I wish you well ~ Jeques
