The need to let go

The need  to Let Go

As children bring their broken toys
With tears for us to mend,

I took my broken dreams to God,
Because He is my friend,.....

But instead of leaving Him in peace to work alone,
I hung around and tried to help
With ideas of my own.

At last I snatched them back,
And cried.. "How could you be so slow?"

"My child" He said,"What could I do?...
You never did let go".

Pray and Let go.
