You Will Never Be Alone

By on Nov 06, 2012

We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures. – Thornton Wilder

This is for my wife, Mary Beth.

Do you have someone who needs to read words like these? If so, let this inspire you – encourage you before it’s too late. This is the only moment that is guaranteed. Show love today; share your heart right now.

Your hand
still holds my mine
even when we are apart.

Time is moving a little faster these days,
but there was a time when
we didn’t have to rush.

Back then you placed your heart
into the same hand
and offered it to me.

I took it and
squeezed a little too tight.
Youth doesn’t always know
the delicate touch love needs.

I know now.

I know now you want me
to hold your hand
so you won’t fall down
so you can feel me breathe
so you will never be alone.

Time is moving a little faster these days.
There will be a day when
your hand
will not find mine.

When that day comes
hold your hand
over your heart
and feel me again.

You will never be alone.
