Hold On

Hold On.

I held a young soul suffering, and my Achilles heal I bared. / I hugged a breaking heart and it punched right through my chest. /  I held a breath of deep despair and shared a lifeless void. /  Surrendered to a stolen moment and entered a sacred place. / I allowed words to pierce my guard and a trembling hand met mine. /  I shed a tear as pain took hold and it softened another’s fall.  /We sat with silence, moved with fear, and together we returned.  /  We captured moments of relief, and I held the hand of hope.
