Let Him Go


I should let him go rejoin the flock,
As a caged bird is never happy,
And something with such beauty,
Should never be caged.
*
So I say this last farewell,
and open the door,
To let him go,
But I still stand in the way.
*
For the fear of the pain,
Prevents me letting go,
“It will only hurt for a while,”
Or so I am told.
