Holding Your Heart #oneshotwednesday

Can’t protect you
against the storm
in it’s rage
but I can hold your heart


I can’t shield you
from the flaming
suns rays
but I can hold your heart


Can’t keep your boat
Safe from harm
So it won’t capsize
But I can hold your heart


I can’t keep
The ugliness of life away
Nor protect your eyes
But I can hold your heart


As the storms rage
I will hold
Your Heart
next to



Into another age

your heart

is still




Join us for another week of One Stop Poetry. Each week we have awesome poetry shared in community.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing and publishing in multiple genres (including education) in E. African for E. Africa. As a writer, it is a thrill to write for children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 13 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - my joy is in meeting you!

  1. You captured the parents feeling perfectly about leting their kids go out into the world. We can’t protect them any more. All we can do is hold their hearts. Love the poem, Leslie.


    1. We keep trying to hold them close though dont we? Even if they are going to play in the sand at 5 we want to protect them.


  2. This is so compassionate! Very assuring and comforting!
    Loved the expression..

    Thank you for your kind words at my site.. 🙂
    Many hugs xxxxx


  3. Its a very touching and beautifully put together emotion of caring..
    Everyone wishes for these words at some point in their life….and hope someone could say these words to em 🙂


  4. I love that your poem could apply to any relationship, Leslie, where you have someone giving their unconditional love and support. What more could anyone ask for? Providing a safe harbor is a wonderful gift.


  5. Dearest Moon Beam Magical Oe. This speaks to me as a mother who sees her baby sailing away to those raging seas. All I can do is hold her heart. But luckily hold her body in lots of hugs too and tell her many “I love yous.”

    There once was a lady named Moon
    who was fairer than evenings in June
    she sailed to my blog
    in a poetry fog
    sweeter than a lush Tin Pan tune.

    And that was just off the tip of my fingers this minute! 🙂 But all truer than true.



  6. Truly beautiful Leslie…we try as we can to do all we can…love your writing in this 🙂 ~April *hugs to you dear friend xoxo


  7. What a powerful poem. This made me think of the love I have for my kids and how I would do absoloutely anything to protect them from emotional or physical harm.
    Beautiful, thank you 🙂


  8. just needed to say thank you for your beautiful and comforting words…i could not have found them at a better time and they’ve touched many hearts just as they were written to do …the photo above the poem is haunting and sets the mood ever so effectively…again, thank you for this one…
