Hold My Hand


Running through my eyes
Memories of your smiles
Swimming past times' shores
Unveiling anew my love
As you float out of my reach.
But just for a moment longer
In your parting embrace,
Hold my hand.

Misty eyes rob me of sight
To relive our dawns
And drink in our twilights
Groping in the known dark,
Seeking, wishing, praying
Hold my hand.

Dust falling from hands
Misty eyes seeking me out,
Your strength and courage my wish
Blazing like a fiery spark
For a moment longer,
Still clinging to this hunger
Just this moment,
Hold my hand.

The nights are getting darker
Fighting for a brighter day
Neither pain nor I
Must stop your day
In your need,
Dont let go
...Hold my hand.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
