#24 - Held

National Poetry Writing Month - April 2013



by Jeanie Killion

That first time

I heard Your voice,

I was a little child.

You said, 

“Be not afraid.

I am with you,

night & day."

Your words

from long ago

have kept me


picked me up;

made me


for whatever

life has held.

For, I’ve been held . . .

By You.
