Let go

We are part of The Trust Project.

Let go

Of the sentence you can't finish

Of trying to remember

My name

Where you are


What month it is

Let me help you

Clean your glasses

Comb your hair

Ease into this wheelchair

We're moving you down the hall

You won't have to take any more

Pills you can't swallow


You don't have to eat supper

If you only want juice

We understand

Your weakness is growing stronger

Your eyes are dim

Your mouth is dry

Now it's time

for you to let go


And for me to say good-bye
