Holding You Close

Holding Hands

 

Holding you close, my soul’s at ease,

As if you’ve lifted Life’s disease

Of hunger, sorrow, and trying

To stop disaster and dying,

Especially when ‘vis-a-vis’.

 

Other ones I could never please,

Beating me down to humble knees;

But you feel so good, I’m flying,

Holding you close.

 

A sense of wonder oversees

My body, as my hand you squeeze;

My heart, with joy, feels like crying,

And ev’ry breath comes out sighing;

My land has overcome those seas,

Holding you close.

 

(written in 1978)

About cdsmiller17

I am an Astrologer who also writes about world events. My first eBook "At This Point in Time" is available through most on-line book stores. I have now serialized my second book "The Star of Bethlehem" here. And to give my blog pages something lighter, I'm sharing some of my personal photographs, too.
