When we’re experiencing deep emotional pain this prayer poem expresses our need for loving arms to wrap around us until our pain subsides.

~ Acts of Love ~

If you love me

          then hold me

                   and don’t let go,

because, right now, I’m in a lot of pain.

Everyone else,

but you;

          they seem so far away

                   and I don’t really know

if my heart can take

 this extra strain.

It was just when

          I thought I knew

                   that I was fine-

I  thought everything would be alright

That I slowly began

          to realize

                   that I was blind-

I would not sleep through another night…

Knowing the pain

           I felt inside

                   because we are apart,

and no one else will be here.

If you will

          just hold me,

                   I know in my heart,

that all of this pain will disappear.
