Mom,
I forever held on to the thunder,
the hurricane that raged inside me,
the pain that was under my disguise of denial
that you hated me,
but somehow the storm has faded

And,
sometimes when I was all alone I cried
for you and the way things used to be
the days when it was just you and me
and sometimes my eyes were dried
because they had opened to the truth

The certainty that,
your leaving me is the reason I've blossomed so beautifully
because you were willing to let go
and now it's time for me to willfully
release you, and I know
that it's going to be a long process,
but it's for the best

I cannot dwell on my past
if I'm to prepare for my future
hence at last...
my soul can be pure and free
of the shadowing memories
that have so long brought me down

I'm going to soak up the sun
and continue to bloom
because I'm done
with feeling this gloom

I must macerate through the darkness
and walk into the light
because I can no longer cry, despite
my love for you...

I love you,
but it's time that I move on...


Goodbye
