There could be several meanings
You can visualize dress suits and ties
No longer having a formal dress code
Snipping that neckware down to size.
Maybe it brings to mind a new purchase
A childs toy, secured with black zip ties
You have to take a knife or maybe shears
And help to cut free their new surprise.
Maybe you think of family or even friends
You may not be able to see the mental ties
There when two hearts seemed to connect
Cut by distance, pain, confusion, maybe lies.
It doesn’t matter what we do through our lives
There will come times when we have to cut ties
Take the time, the care, the strength to set free
Knowing it may bring smiles, tears or even sighs.
