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)
