Hold My Hand Poem by G J Salgado

Hold My Hand

Rating: 5.0

It's frustrating
Sometime the past grabs a hold of me
I look back at my childhood dreams
You left me with an empty cup
I was told there wasn't enough
But the truth was that you drank it all up

It makes me sad thinking of all the things I wanted to be
Too many more important things but they weren't me
I look through your eyes and it pains me to see

You did want you could when you were fighting the disease
It ate you up inside but I won't let it take me
You won't find me drinking
I spend most of my time thinking
How I can create a better family

I look back into the past but I won't stare too long
At the man I always saw so strong
Today we're given a chance to right the wrongs
As I hold your hand the same way I did all along
