You hold my hand,
I, like a child, feel safe.
You hold my hand,
I feel a warm embrace.

and I am less afraid.
You hold my hand,
I know a sense of peace.
You hold my hand,
I feel my troubles cease.

Well, you've really made my day. I have to tell you, although you must know it already, your poems are a great deal more popular than mine!

Ann, all of your work is so special, amazing, and creative. I am so jealous at how you can convey a deep, powerful message in so few words. I tend to ramble on and on, and I literally can't stop myself. I believe a truly good poet is a wordsmith and should be able to express their message in few words, before the reader gets bored, which is my weak point. You are really an amazing poet. You should make a book out of your work because people really like shorter poems, and you can give them really gorgeous poetry and in a short form. I'm going to make a point of reading all of your work.
