Take My Hand (poem)

Updated on January 6, 2016

Come take my hand it’s time for us to go

This isn’t quite the world we’ve come to know

There’s something very different aglow

We better leave before the changes grow


Let’s leave a light should any hope still stray

Let’s take our tears and bury them away

For flowers blooming to a strange new day

Come take my hand and we’ll be on our way


Our star awaits to lead us as we go

For what has passed can’t be that far away

That dream we shared was just the other day

We danced in fields where memories did grow


What was has changed mid mist it now does stray

Our search for whys returns I do not know

Bleak shadows loom where once was all aglow

What once so real has somehow lost its way


Yet all and all we felt our feelings grow

We met the darkness with our hearts aglow

Let’s leave and make the world we used to know

Come take my hand it’s time for us to go

      I think that if we do not keep focused, we will lose what used to keep us close and growing together. Beautiful words, keep close and hold hands to remain strong. Blessings.

      I can't help but wonder if the poet is doing the bidding or is being called? This is just hauntingly beautiful and so right.

      Grab hold of what is fading and bring it back to life, lest we lose it forever.

      This is beautiful and sadly it may be time for all of us to go to a land that resembles the land we came from. Where that is, I just don't know.
