Take my hand to hold
your thoughts, fears
dreams, and wishes.
I will hold them while you rest.
Squeeze my hand
when the tears run down
your cheeks from the pain
I will squeeze back so you
know you are heard.
Grab my hand
when you feel like you’re
slipping into the abyss.
I will hold you steady
as you step back on solid ground.
Take my hand in friendship, love, and support.
Your thoughts, fears, dreams, wishes,
pain and unsteady gait are safe in my firm and steady grip.
Thank you for reading my memoir, Untangled, A Story of Resilience, Courage, and Triumph
