To My Past

Thank you for loving me the way you could.

Thank you for teaching me how strong I am.

Thank you for every opportunity to see who I really was even when I didn’t know.

Thank you most of all for letting me go.

It was the hardest thing to do but yet, you knew my worth and that you truly weren’t worth it.

I must admit you tried to release my grip was but it was so strong.

I didn’t want to let go, I didn’t want to lose the very thing I thought I couldn’t live without.

Yet here I am living, loving, glowing and shining like never before.

Your actions spoke louder than your words and your words never lined up with your actions.

One thing remains my love I poured out will never change.

It was pure, genuine, covered in love, and sprinkled with my all.

Every ounce of me loved you more than I loved myself.

Today I love myself in a way I didn’t think I could.

So thank you for letting me go so I can grow and glow!

Much love to the memories past and the future that lies ahead.

It’s brighter because God has kept me even when I thought I lost it all.

Christ showed up and showed me that He alone is who I truly needed both then and now!

Forever and always

Your Past ❤️
