    Cool breezes in the morn
    Soothes my pain, my dreams
    Of love, hopes of tomorrow
    Walking the park holding hands

    I wish to close my eyes and See
    you appear between the fall of tears
    as the summer days become longer
    holding close to my serenity

    the humid air of midday takes my
    breathing when I try to run in your
    direction not realizing that distance
    holds me at patience doorstep;

    I can’t breathe, I can’t see for when
    I open my eyes all I see is you walk
    By in a crowd, calling to me from all
    Directions holding my thoughts at bay;

    I’m on my knees tonight, shivering
    Like a new born cub in winter seeking
    Warmth from one whom loves them so
    Wanting to be held in security’s veil;

    The rains come and go as the storm
    Of tears flow endlessly within me
    Never allowing the world to see pain
    Holding my heart in full constriction;

    And yet I can never turn away from the
    Things within that has planted hope, instilled
    joy, resurrected aspiration all the while
    Holding close to the things that keep me

    Fearfully in love with you…

    thoughts of tomorrow as i await the moment to hold someone's hand...

    Blessed is the woman who shall hold thou hand. What an affectionate piece of work here.

    Especially loving this verse:

    the humid air of midday takes my
    breathing when I try to run in your
    direction not realizing that distance
    holds me at patience doorstep;

    May distance be shorter today than it was yesterday.

    Much respect...Joyce
