Podcast #33 – Hold Me

I was so irritated at the world and it was tearing me up. Ugh! I returned home from vacation to what felt like a mountain of negativity that seemed to come from every direction. I’m sure there isn’t really more of it. It was probably just that I was tired and more sensitive to it and I really let it get to me. So, count me super grateful to have my husband who is so much calmer than I am. He’s steady, strong and not as prone to despair. And, I’m lucky to have someone who balances me out so well. And, great friends for counsel. I ended up doing some positive things to combat the negative. You know what the Dalai Lama says: “If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” 

It’s true! Also, arguing on social media does so little to solve anything. Thanks to my FB followers for sharing this one 🙂
The prompt was: just a little bit longer

Hold Me
Time, ticking on the clock
I’m running out of patience
I want the world to stop
Setting off alarms
All over creation
When everything we need
Is all along
In each other’s arms
where we belong

Weighs heavy on my heart
All the mess we’re making
Sometimes it takes
Everything I’ve got
Just to stand and face it
I don’t need to rest up
For a fight
I just need some love
To make it right

Hold me, just a little bit longer
I don’t want to face the world today
You know it’s only
love that makes me stronger
safe inside your arms,
I’m holding on
you give me strength

When will it ever change
All of this confusion
We have to give our love
If no one ever does
everybody loses
I wish it were an
Easy thing to do
Just like staying here
and loving you

So, hold me, just a little bit longer
I don’t want to face the world today
You know it’s only
love that makes me stronger
safe inside your arms, I’m holding on
you give me strength

The love we need
To make it is our own
But we’ll never find
The world we seek alone

So, hold me, just a little bit longer
I don’t want to face the world today
You know it’s only
love that makes me stronger
safe inside your arms, I’m holding on
Oh, won’t you hold me,
just a little bit longer
I don’t want to face the world today
You know it’s only
love that makes me stronger
safe inside your arms, I’m holding on
you give me strength
