By a Stranger

I don’t take to poetry as much as I do other mediums. Often moved by music or a painting over poetry, but this one found me. I kind of love it. So, to you, stranger Bret Emery, thank you for sharing.

 

“Hold On”

Just sit and listen over here
Grab your girl and hold her near
Just give her your coat on a rainy day
Just sit and listen to what she may say
Push her to where she may not have gone
Be the man in her love songs

Hold on to the moments
Make them last
Before you know it
They’ve gone too fast
When you look to the future
Do so with a smile
Because everyone’s day’s
Cloudy once in awhile
Be the friend with the extra wings
To help lift them up to the tops of things
And when you lose a friend
Smiling right to the end
Continue his smile and
His message you’ll send

And when your close your eyes and
They are in your dreams
And you cant forget them it seems
Remember the memories and the time you spent
And try to figure out where all the time went
Just yesterday you were startin’ school
Had all the time in the world
And you were so cool
Don’t forget those moments
And hold them near
But still look to the future
Without any fear

Hold on to the moments
Make them last
Before you know it
They’ve gone too fast
When you look to the future
Do so with a smile
Because everyone’s day’s
Cloudy once in awhile
Be the friend with the extra wings
To help lift them up to the tops of things
And when you lose a friend
Smiling right to the end
Continue his smile and
His message you’ll send
