When We Let Go

This song was originally written by Allen when his father died some years ago.  We dedicate this (rough) recording from last night (Tuesday 5.16.18) to the memory of Michael’s father Charles William Rohrer. Michael, we are all grateful that your dad’s death was peaceful and filled with music.

When We Let Go (allen kitselman)

May the arms of the sky open wide and carry you home
May the journey you embark on be relief from the burdens you have known

The waves crash in and wash our handiwork away
But we can’t plan to live in that castle anyway
It’s the memories not the castle that stays here in the sand
We will know all we can know- when we let go

May your mother and your father and all the loved ones who have gone on before (you)
Be there to take your hand and greet you at the threshold of the door

CHORUS
When we let go of these roots that we have thrust down in the earth
Every pain, every problem we have fought from our birth
Falls away, when we let go, falls away like tears
We will know all we can know
When we let go of these roots that we have thrust down in the earth
Every pain, every battle we have fought from our birth
Falls away, when we let go, falls away like the years
We will know all we can know, when we let go
