Closely Hold Me


When shadows I no longer cast
in darkest hours of dismay
and hope looks like it cannot last,
please closely hold me on that day.

I promise it be only brief,
just long enough that I might rest,
so I'll feel safe, get some relief,
until I am back at my best.

Yes, even I am sometimes weak,
this source of hope you've come to know.
So small I feel and often meek
and wonder if I still can glow.

Some dreams I know now I won't find,
but tears will never wet my face.
I've settled it within my mind.
I only ask this short embrace.

When strength returns and finds its voice,
I'll thank you in a special way.
For now I simply need your warmth.
There are no words you need to say.

An exceptional write Micheal,

Michael - This is beautiful. Big hugs are on the breeze to you from this grateful reader in Ontario, Canada. Bless You. Chris p.s. this one is library bound!!

Life is not measured by breaths you take, but by moments that take your breath away.

I am now standing in a very long line-up of your friends who want to  give you a great big hug.

Here's one online...H-U-G...the real one you should be getting in about a year's time, when the line-up gets shorter!!!

~ smiles and hugs ~
