Letting go of the past

Letting go of the past

For nearly all my life

I’ve been unable to let go of objects

as my sadness and my anguishes

were trapped in them

And now, suddenly

I have this urge to clear my surroundings

so that I can see farther toward the horizon

and focus on what is truly essential

And thus I create the emptiness, the space

for you to come to me

and grow by my side

as nothing shall stand anymore

between our love and us

As we rid the garden of our soul

from its weeds and its brambles

it shall become our heaven of peace

to sit down and contemplate the evening stars

and breathe the scent of flowers

caressed by a breeze of freedom

which has travelled all the way from the ocean
