Setting them free
By R. Wolf Shipon (1MinuteHealing.com)
If someone you know
Feels the urge to go
You just set them free
And if you’re like me
What you will find —
If you’re of like mind —
Is when they return
Great trust you will earn

We co-create dreams
To hope and believe
First give, then receive
A journey begins
An open heart wins
Tell them “Joy pursue!”
