I Would Love for Her to Let Go

Source: spoken personal story


About my daughter Chloe
Just about to turn eight
She’s a deeply feeling child
Just like her mama
She’s a real worrier
Just like her mama

 

Chorus:
And I would love for her to let go
To be free, to feel peace

 

She was born an Aries,
I’m a Sagittarius
We are both fire signs
Trying to be grounded
She’s a lovely singer
Such a beautiful voice

 

And I would love for her to let go…

 

We have a ritual and bedtime
We sing a song about angels
She says stop, do it again
Your smile isn’t right.
So we sing it again
She says your smile’s still not right

 

And I would love for her to let go…

 

About my daughter Chloe
She reflects my worry
From my busy self
She calls me to be here
To be present, to listen
To slow down and see her

 

And I would love for her to let go…
