"Love Me Enough To Let Go"

By: Dr. Katherine McElhinny Ph.D.

Karen loved to read.

Your hearts are breaking - I know: I can tell
Because you're my parents and I know you so well
As hard as this is, there's something I need to say
I don't want to linger, don't beg me to stay
Keeping me here only gets in my way
Prevents me from getting where I want to be
Out of this body and finally pain free
Living with God is my ultimate goal
By taking me home He is making me whole
The only thing holding me back, Mom and Dad,
Is thinking of you and the good times we had.
You fought for me when no one else could,
Refused to give up when others told you you should
You packed a whole lifetime of love in (two) years
Gave me strength to handle my fears
Showered me with courage - you said - "It's a loan"
While secretly hiding tears of your own
You've done everything I needed - I couldn't ask for much more
Please love me enough - to help me pass through that door
I know you are sad - and it doesn't seem fair
But the time has come to put me in God's care
Since I started the job I was sent here to do
And planted a seed now residing in you
I'm sure I can trust you to carry my load
Please love me enough - enough to let go

Karen wanted to help other folks with MELAS.
