SET YOU FREE


A dear blogger friend of mine, Judy Unger, http://myjourneysinsight.com/ has generously mailed me a parcel with some of her songs.  She also wrote me a very touching email and appended a beautiful song sung by her.  The song, SET YOU FREE, http://judyunger.files.wordpress.com/2010/10/set-you-free-9_26_12-copyright-2012-by-judy-unger.mp3 was written by Judy when she faced losing her father and is hauntingly beautiful!

SET YOU FREE - Judy Unger
SET YOU FREE – Judy Unger
SET YOU FREE
 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 touch, your voice, 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 touch, your voice, 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 touch, your voice, 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

Vic is not having a good day.  She is so brave, but it is clear to all that she is slowly losing the battle.

The cellulitis in her arm is slowly clearing, the pain and nausea is under control but Vic is weaker.  She looks old and drawn – the pain clearly etched on her little face.  My heart physically aches when I look at her, and I know that my love will follow her, wherever she may go..

I know I must set Vic free.  I need to release her from the hell she lives.  I echo Judy’s words “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”  

Thank you Judy for your compassion and sharing your beautiful songs with me.

  1. Tersia,
    Judy Unger has shared your blog with me. May I offer my support to you in this difficult time. I am a hospice volunteer in the United States and work with patients and their families. I am no expert in these matters, I don’t think anyone really is. But I offer you my friendship and and support through this challenging time. I will be reading your posts, keeping you and Vic in my thoughts and praying for an easy transition.

  2. A beautiful song and gesture. I wish that you’d never have to face letting go, but, wherever and whenever Vic may go, she will still be with you and her pain will finally cease.
    Hugs from my family and I.

  3. Dearest Tersia,
    When I saw how you shared my song, I was weeping. I never imagined you would do this. Know that I am thinking of you across the world. Of course, you are setting her free. It’s saying goodbye that is so very difficult. Her essence will never leave you – remember that. I am thinking of both of you with much love. I hope I’ll meet you someday.
