words and art by w a l t e r w s m i t h

Holding You

Your soft breathing
and beating heart
caresses my sadness
and brings peace to my longing

– There is a moment when the reality of life, in all its complexity, is simplified by one gesture … holding you.

    • Oh what a beautiful compliment Sheila. Really. I appreciate it. Everyday or most days, we need that deeper connection that gives peace to our world. And our world within. To love and to be loved.
