Holding Tighter To Life


Empty spaces in my mind, left over from memories of
yesterday, when I was blessed with the most treasured

Now, caressing every thought with my heart, feeling
their presence always in my soul.
Never fading from sight, just holding tighter to
ties of my life as I move forward beyond the hallways
of lightened knowledge.
