holding on

We live in uncertain times

when every day

becomes more precious–

a sunrise

takes on a higher meaning

your smile

is something to be cherished

ever so more–

and I hold onto

the simple things

never taking for granted

what love can do–

how it surpasses hate

every time I look

into the eyes of humanity

and see the same

longing for peace
