Hold on Tight

Today my heart broke

As I laid down and spoke

Soft words to my darling son

As his life of burden begun

Gripped with fear that cannot

Be defeated or even fought

Though I would battle anything

Can we defeat anxiety?

Your tears ripped my heart away

Give me the words I need to say

To soothe your pain and anguish

I’m desperate this ache to vanquish

If I had the weapon

I would end the confusion

If only my love and embrace

Your anxiety could erase

I’m becoming desperate my son

To guard you from this season

It pains me as your father

That your world is becoming darker

I would take your fear and pain

But my hopes are all in vain

I promise I’ll fight with you though

I will never give up, never let go
