When I Held You - Visitor's Poem

by Carl Stoynoff

When God blessed me with your presence
I held you in life long regard,
When the Angels gave birth to you
I held you 'til you could fly,
When the Sun kissed your face under my sky
I held you up to everyone's light,
When the Moon broke through the darkness
I held you close inside my arms,
When all others shunned your existence
I held you up when knees gave in,
When the night terrors arrived in sleep
I held back the monster's tribe,
When the thunder and lightening came
I held your hand and tried,
When you lost faith and trust in me
I held my face and cried,
When I finally woke up and said good-bye
I was holding your shattered picture in my mind.
