TAKE MY HAND

  

What can I do or say to ease your pain?

I can see the darkness in your eyes

Joy has taken leave and happiness has joined her.

You seem vacant, alone, scared.

I am here to tell you that you are not.

Please, take my hand.

Let me pull you out of the darkness.

 

What can I do or say to help you find hope,

When hope is hidden,

Life has lost its luster,

And love is a distant memory?

I am here to tell you that you deserve happiness.

Please, take my hand

I will lead you away from despair.

 

What can I do or say to lighten your load?

Your spirit has fallen victim to the weight of your troubles.

Your heart is heavy,

and you are convinced that the journey is no longer worth the effort

I am here to tell you that it is the journey that shapes us.

Please, take my hand

Let me walk beside you.

 

What can I do or say to make you believe that your life matters,

when your deepest wounds are self-inflicted,

you are drowning in a sea of negative thoughts,

and your self-esteem has vanished?

I am here to tell you that you are a gift.

Please take my hand.

And don’t let go until your heart is healed.
