Lord, Hold My Hand

Lord, You understand!
You heard the crash
like sudden doom
You saw the fear-dilated eyes of my soul
survey the ground
where lay the gloom-wrapped pieces of my hopes,
shattered in less time
than it could take a second hand
to round the dial.

Lord, You know the agony
of a broken heart,
and so,
Dear Lord,
hold my hand.

-Ione Lyall
