Liner Notes: 

Written for a friend who is going through an unexpected painful separation

Lyrics: 

Letting go

Feel I am sinking
Drowning real slow
Holding on for nothing
I have to let go

You were my anchor
Against life's storm
But you lifted our mooring
And sailed off on your own

Paradise was perfect
Just you and me
But I woke to your leaving
Am left stranded at sea

Feel I am sinking
Drowning real slow
Holding on for nothing
I have to let go

Unwritten chapters
But memories remain
I'll fill in the blank pages
And start over again

Paradise for one
May not be as sweet
But need not last for long
My mind and me
Soul set free
Journey to where we belong

Felt I was sinking
But now have let go
Holding on for something
In time I will know
No longer drowning
Just taking it slow.

Michael August 2020

This is another seriously good sad but sort-of-accepting-tho' -not -quite lyric. I'm too hogtied at present, no-one's picked it up by end August, prod me about it please,
