'Can I hold your hand'

Can I hold your hand? Just until your smile returns? Promise not to hold too tight In case you feel smothered A hint of the tears you shed Still visible – a testimony of your pain Your wall went up again I can feel it; you pushing at it Pushing every one away I will not feel wounded I will not force you to talk I know you need your space Can I hold your hand? Until your smile returns

    So elegantly beautiful.... It brought to mind one I wrote some time ago... You might like "Brush Away The Tear" posted in my portfolio. I really enjoyed the entry. I felt so peaceful and content after reading it.... Jake
