Hold Me Over - Poem by Kristina Louisa Carr

Today is a good day and I'm holding on
Not once have I cried because you're gone
Looking over jade green waters in the pond
I see Canadian Geese making a lifelong bond

The sun casts beautiful shadows on the grass
Resting on the bench the time just slowly pass
A welcoming cool breeze traveling from the sea
And I'm dreaming of you and how things could be

I have met someone that is holding me over
Until I can breathe again and live without fever
A calming sensation that has crept in slowly
It's only temporarily and feels almost unholy

I look into blue eyes but see hazel mostly
Your image still strong in my mind and ghostly
There are so many things I could have done
But I missed my chance and it can't be undone

Barely holding me over is this new situation
While thinking of you I have no new motivation
Maybe one day you will be back and find me
And we can start over right here by the sea
