Hold Onto HopeHe held my hand by the ends of my fingers as we ran through the field of barley
With every kiss we communicated unspoken desires and fears
I was alive staring into his green eyes, feeling this uncontrollable energy
Surge from his head to his hands and through my body
Dad said hed never love me, that I was a fool to waste my time with his type
We define riches and wealth in our different ways, money is not a want in my life
Wants me to marry a man with a stiff upper lip manner and a million dollar manor
A man whod treat me with no more respect than he thought a woman would deserve
My boy just wants me to happy, hes my entity and now my identity
He said, Wait for me and pressed his lips on my tear-stained cheek
He drove into the horizon and out of my life, though not forever
As I dry my eyes and remember to write; Ill keep holding on to hope.
Solace in SpringWinter thoughts make the mind despair, nothing is as it was
The dark wearing on the soul, gravity weighing heavily
Clouding over any clarity your fingertips keep hold to
Long, lonely nights, short days of nothing
Hope seems as fragile as the stripped trees
Things that once seemed great are bare
They shall grow and flourish, just not yet.
Yearning for how it once was; previous summers of beauty and joy
Pain makes time seem longer and speech spoken slower.
It is too easy to hibernate inside, shut everything out
Courage lies within going through the motions and staying true
Let the rain wash away the pain, sit quiet and strong against the storm
Creating a braver, wiser person who is more prepared for less fairer days
Take solace in spring; that the sun will shine down again.
