“Hold Me”

~ Esther Mitchell, 1993 ~

When darkness lingers,

when this sunlight fades,

Will love grow cold,

will heart meet blade?

Just hold me close,

and hold me tight,

That I might hide myself,

in you tonight.

When thunder rolls,

and lightning strikes,

will the pain go on,

with no end in sight?

Just hold me tighter,

hold me dear,

while this candle flickers,

and the storms draw near.

When this is all past,

and the morning’s light comes,

Will there be nothing left,

where we’ve come from?

So hold me now,

while you still can,

Let me hold you now,

in my heart, and these hands.
