This is a popular and wonderful poem about letting go. It is said that the let go and let God origin comes from this poem.
There is also a video of the poem you can watch.
As children brings their broken toys With tears for us to mend, I brought my broken dreams to God, because He was my friend. But then, instead of leaving Him, in peace, to work alone; I hung around and tried to help, with ways that were my own. At last, I snatched them back and cried, "How can you be so slow?" "My child," He said, "What could I do? You never did let go." - Author: Lauretta P. Burns 1957
