Hold Tight to the Light

How I ask you came to be 
bare and naked in the night?
Dark streets and bricked walls
Are fast reminders of your plight,
Eyes held low, you don’t reach out
for something warm to hold,
These city streets and empty heart-beats
have left you feeling cold.
Please hold tight to the light,
It lends a  brief respite,
As you dream for better days
In this cold dark night.

About DiAnne Ebejer

I am retired and live on the East coast of Florida where I spend much of my time reading, playing with photography and trying to write some "poetry and then some" at dianneebejer.wordpress.com. I care deeply about many things and wish there was much more love and compassion in this world today. I also have a part time blog "Thought You Might Like This" diannesthingsat.wordpress.com used for special projects and occasional things of interest
