Lift me up with hands that hold me steady
I am not strong enough to stand alone
Yet one day I will walk the ways you lead me
I am the fruit of seeds that you have sown.
Touch my hand with hands that can be gentle
I am yet weak but strength has weakness too
For I have noticed sometimes when your smiling
You hide big tears that choke the way mine do.
Love me much for I am ever growing
My soul can dry up just like flowers that die
Feed me with the love of man and nature
Give me strength, and set my standards high.
Give me Justice, Freedom, and the Future
Let my mind and heart stay undefiled
Be my friend and helper while I am, learning,
And give me time for I am but a child.
I know this is out of focus (or could I be ‘arty’ and say ’soft focus?) but I still love this shot.
This is a very dear friend, we have been friends for some 15 years. He and his wife are so special to me. Now I am unashamedly, totally, completely and absolutely madly in love with their son.
