Lifted Spirits

A smile, a touch,
Can mean so much,
Your hand in mine,
I’m not alone.
Steadfast and strong,
We meet things head on,
Together we fight,
Us Two, as One.
Each day seemed a year
As we waited in fear,
Not knowing what
Where or how.
It wasn’t a dream,
This thing happening to me,
But at least the not knowing
Is over now.
Tears started to fall,
But we stood tall
Unbeaten, united
With so much on our side.
We never gave in,
We took it on the chin,
But through it all,
Hope never died.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
