Don't Let Go...



For every up there is a down
For every high there is a low
For every love there is someone
Hold my hand and don’t let go

For every joy, oh there is grief
With every wonder there is woe
For every bud there is a leaf
Hold my hand and don’t let go

For every smile there is a tear
For every tear there is a crown
For every hope there is a fear
For every up there is a down
For every triumph there’s despair
For every gain, something to lose
For every trouble there is prayer
It’s up to you and me to choose
For every high there is a low
Only, only love secures
Hold my hand and don’t let go
Hold my hand and I’ll hold yours

For every night there is a day
For every day a night to rest
For every doubt there is a way
For every better there is best
For every road there is an end
For every yes there is a no
And for each other, there’s a friend
Hold my hand and don’t let go
Oh darling, hold my hand
And
Don’t let go

  1. Janet, you are GREAT! I really don't think you know just how great you are..that makes you even greater!
    This poem would make a very special song, too. Hope some talented composer notices it.

  2. you are so very kind to me:) I was listening to Josh Groban and somehow the way he sings and touches those piano keys just made these words SPILL almost faster than i could type them! thank-you again, dear friend.
