Hold On, My Friend

In your worst moments

when all that is good

and right in the world

seems so far away

and hope is no more

than a distant dream,

remember these things,

my friend:

The stars remain

steadfast in their spaces

and the moon still guides

the tides in their paces

and the planets are still

lined up in their places

and you’re loved as you are…

because that is what grace is.

Please hold tight. Don’t let go.

Try to breathe through the pain.

Like the sun every morning,

hope will rise once again.

Hold on, my friend.

Hold on.

~ L.R. Knost
