Dragonfly dragonfly

Stuck in my car

Bang on the window

It won't get you far

Or maybe it's working

I see you won't stay

I'll open that window

So you'll fly far away

Leave me some luck

And a pinch of good cheer

And I'll think of you often

Though you're no longer here

True Story

 

Sometimes we have a hard time letting go of things that are no longer needed. Even though we know it's for best, old habits die hard. Make sure when we do find the courage to open that window and let that dragonfly free we refill the void with positive things. We will also do well to remember the lesson learned from the things that no longer serve us. Blessed Be
