Letting Go – a sonnet

This sonnet, ‘Letting Go’, was written about an incident which happened in Coventry in the late 1980s.  The story behind the events was never told to me but a similar incident happened in London some years later and in this sonnet I merged the two sad tales. The use of  the sonnet form is unusual for such subject matter but helps to give the poem more force.
