SET YOU FREE

Copyright 2011 by Judy Unger

 

You’re hanging on as night turns to dawn

I know you can’t stay and soon you’ll be gone

We both know it’s hard to let go

Wherever you are my love won’t be far

 

Your smile, your voice, your touch, your face

Your essence I will never replace

Though I long for you to hold me

I need to set you free

 

There is no fear and your leaving is clear

We’ll still have our love it remains with each tear

 I cry as you leave but I truly believe

As you leave my sight we’ll both be all right

 

Your smile, your voice, your touch, your face

Your essence I will never replace

Though I long for you to hold me

I need to set you free

 

Though you have flown to somewhere unknown

We’re never apart ‘cause you’re here in my heart

 

Your smile, your voice, your touch, your face

Your essence I will never replace

Though I long for you to hold me

I need to set you free

Though I long for you to hold me

I need to set you free

Story behind SET YOU FREE-PART 2

My parents loved me very much and still do. That will never leave me.

MESSAGE THAT I WROTE TO AN INTERNET GRIEF GROUP I BELONG TO: 

My name is Judy. I read everyone’s messages and all of them make me cry. All of the people in this group are suffering and deserve to feel better! I cry for everyone and for every message that I’ve read! Taking care of yourself when you are grieving is extremely important.

I suffered a lot with my grief after I lost my five-year-old son; I wanted to die. I could not wake up each morning to face the pain. I grieved for a long time. Because of my music I wake up now each day with joy.

I was an illustrator for thirty years, but now I am a writer and composer. It has helped me very much to express my pain through my music.

I currently have grief in my life. Both of my elderly parents have been dramatically deteriorating. The burden of trying to alleviate their suffering has been very painful for me.

My mother has rapidly progressing dementia. She still recognizes me, but is often terribly confused and agitated. My father is now bedridden and plagued by constant infections and pain.

Last week I wrote a song and I had it arranged. It has been a luxury to spend money to hire a wonderful arranger for my music. But I feel that this is something that has brought me happiness.

My song is named, “Set You Free.” My song expresses many things for me. I wrote it last week when my father was hospitalized with pneumonia and a blood infection. Both my parents deeply love me and are barely holding onto life. I need to “set them free.” 

After two decades, I still remember and miss my dead son. When I sing my song I believe I am setting free my grief for him. I can finally accept that my son is free and he is all right. 

Someday, I hope my children will be independent. I also want to “set them free.”

Thank you so much for allowing me to share with all of you. My book about my healing from grief is now with an editor. Although I still have further steps involved before I can publish it, I will definitely let this group know when it’s available. My book tells my honest story of how my music has truly brought joy back into my life.

Most sincerely, Judy
