let it be

let it be
words of Mary
saying yes to the
unexpected realities
of her life
saying yes
to knowing
she might be 
an outcast
even stoned
her yes
was not 
or weak
it was a powerful
what had been her dreams
for her life?
what had been her aspirations?

but in that unexpected hour
in the moment
of her life being changed
in direction

she said
let it be
let it be

letting go of what was
and allowing
a new reality 
let it be

living in the present moment
and shifting
let it be

letting go of of fear
and saying
yes to trust
let it be

allowing hope for a new
seeds of dreams
let it be

and as the Beatles sang it....
And when the night is cloudy 
there is still a light that shines on me
Shine until tomorrow, 

let it be
I wake up to the sound of music, 

Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, 

let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

Cathy, I've just caught up on reading your December posts and wanted to thank you for sharing yourself and your words. You are speaking to my soul and I know your words are an important part of my journey right now. All week long, the words "Rise up woman, rise up" (from your song) have been playing in my head. Tonight I will go to the winter solstice ceremony and like Mary, will say "let it be..."
