Holding onto love

Hands

Holding onto the love I feel

Helps me to see when either you or I

Are reacting in fear

I do not know the inner workings of your soul

The silent pain you carry

Or the struggle you had to survive

And so I must hold onto love

When things are difficult

I can still use my sword when I need to cut away

The brambles of self illusion and defence

That keep me away from the vulnerable soft spot

Of your inner child’s heart

Inside my mind

But when I hold on to love

I choose to see the good in you

Beneath the wounding and the pain

A good you may never get to live or realise

Unless I hold onto love
