Holding, one


Who is ready in this life        
to be born    
to leave childhood behind      
to take responsibility      
to be a parent      
and to guide others      
  to take solace in old age and in grief        

Who is ready, to take another's soul      
and her heart      
her life and her dreams      
who would do that and
keep her happy?      

Takes a Man
or a Woman
to do that      
One who knows
what holding a soul
in their hands

that silvery creation,
that will o'wisp,
that stray thought        
wrapt around and held tight        
burning bright,
and once again shining as
a beacon light      

 Ships in the dark, ground under,
Hopes dashed and then uplifted      
Many falter and so      
who Looks for the high falutin’      
Give Me One who walks
and knows the way      

No eyes , no sockets      
the mind His guide
