Beside me

by joetwo

Hold my hand for just a second

For just mere moments let me feel your slightest touch

The gentlest squeeze of the fingers

The softest rub of the thumb

Nothing much

Only something small

For that is all I need

Just a reminder

That through all I have to go through

All I have to deal with

You are there

To comfort, to aid

To be there

Beside me
