    YOU LET THE LINE GO

    You let the line go
    You let your heart show
    Let’s move on now to a different time
    When puddles of rain collected in the drive
    Adolescents thrive
    You could hide behind the barn wood
    Climb the trees that once stood
    Fool your mom and dad good
    Clever boy
    Somehow saddened by the blue sky
    And always knew of death
    Tucking the genius
    Your mind could never rest
    Over and over and over
    Around and around and around
    Like the Christmas tree train
    Or that speck in the eye
    Bothersome when it happens
    But out of mind when it’s time for goodbye
    There seems to be a direction here
    Like when the clover fields bend to the wind
    And the dog runs off just before dark
    You standing still
    Him chasing the fox
    The pure act of letting go
    The simple fact you let your heart show
    Laying down to see the sky
    Remember when he was five?
    Bold, fearless boy
    Curious joy
    Only the dreams stood in our way
    Dimensions of time were for someone else
    You and I would sail together again and again
    Love one another yes till the end
    Discover a wisdom to battle the foe
    Uncover the history
    Solve the mystery
    Sadly that will never happen
    You let the line go

                This is awesome, the second. One of your best, in my opinion. It flows so subtly and strongly. Not enough Likes. 100% captivating.
