Holding On



Fear not

I am here

Never far away


Reach out

With your heart

I will feel it


Stay strong

Close your eyes

Keep me in mind


Love’s there

Always is

Always will be


This just

A moment

That soon will pass



You will see

Smile beaming back



Even this

Can stop my love



And when

That day comes

I will promise




To let go

Of you, again

      Thank you, dear friend! Now if I only had someone to say it to. πŸ€—β€πŸ˜˜

        I can always count on you to be the eternal optimist, G! Thank you for the thoughtful words. I guess I am feeling the effects of being single just a little more deeply lately. This too shall pass. Thanks for the love and support! You are greatly appreciated! πŸ€—β£

      • My pleasure Brad. My dear friend I know tragedy. Yet I survived and you are right. There is vein of optimism inside me that does not want to go away.
        I guess most people who are single feel that strongly these days. She will come Brad if you want her to come. You will see. Write me then because I want to partake in your joy my dear friend.
        Have a beautiful day ahead
