It is Time to Move on

This is the song title youtube link - see link in Editor's Corner if this one doesn't work for you -
(originally published in Pencil Stubs Online in January 2014 with title "You Cannot Move On". See Hennessy's bio with list of his work.)

You cannot move on,
without letting go
You won’t move along,
with your Past still on show
Take what you want,
or leave it behind
For what lies ahead,
is all in your mind

When it’s out of your head,
and into your Life
Then the past is all dead,
and you come Alive
Each step that you take
is another step closer
There is no mistake,
it’s time to say “NO, sir!”

When you’ve made up your mind,
and your vision is clear,
Don’t be cruel, just be kind,
your mission is Here!

We’re all moving on,
alongside of you
For those left behind
are beside you, too
You could not share
your heart with them
because you care,
you're part of them

So focus on Love,
and that’s what you get
It’s time to move on,
it’s time to forget

Forgotten Heroes
and ill-gotten zeros
Are no use to you,
when you’re sayin' “Cheerio”
Look straight ahead,
with a smile on your face
‘cause you’re being led
to a different place.

It’s time to move on,
it’s time to forget
All that you think
is All that you get.
