I'll Hold You Close

by Michael


Come rest yourself and take my hand.
Speak of the pain that draws your tears,
that robs you of your lovely smile,
when happiness should fill your years.

A broken marriage, broken life,
you search for love and cannot find.
I知 here for you, place take my hand
and rest your weariness of mind.

I値l dry your tears and hold you close,
as only a dear friend can do.
You池e part of me, did you know that?
I知 sure I知 also part of you.

So rest in arms that you know safe
and lovingly I値l stroke your hair.
Release your tears, I know you must
and always know I truly care.

So beautiful.......so very beautiful.  A wonderful gift you give.  Hugs.

On the wings of words our spirits fly....and our souls are free.

"Speak of the pain that draws your tears,
that robs you of your lovely smile,
when happiness should fill your years."

Only a very tender heart full of love for others can write something this beautiful.

There is more depth to the heart than the mind can comprehend and it only has boundaries when we choose to fence it in.
