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

    One of the most beautiful things you can say to a loved one…quite a lovely poem Brad, you are certainly a most wonderful writer. Take good care,

    • Brad Osborne says:

      If our being given expression is a gift, then it is most important in times like these, that we are the voice of those for whom expression is difficult. Thank you for your undying support and love, my dear friend!

      Thank you, Vinayak! You are a dear friend and I appreciate your support and kind words! Stay well and safe!

      • You too Brad, sorry have been a little distracted with my thoughts in this though situation that has dawned upon us, but gradually I will be back. Poetry gives me that solace. Please stay safe my friend
