By the sea
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.
