Artwork of Robert Williams Don't Let Go

I'm doing better than I was
You've made all the difference
By not letting go of my trembling hand
No matter the circumstance

I wish the world were kinder
To souls who've lost their way
And give us all a second chance
As we seek a brighter day

I'm struggling to get up now
After falling down so hard
I see you with that helping hand
And it's like reaching for a star

Believe in me when I forget
All the reasons I persist
I'm getting back the strength I lost
And I'd love a hug and kiss

In the quiet of the midnight
It really helps to know
A love reaching through time and space
Will hold me fast and not let go

Karen Shaw Matteson

There is no exercise better for the heart
than reaching down and lifting people up.
