“When people care for you and cry for you, they can straighten out your soul.” Langston Hughes

Take Care

I took her with me,
a spontaneous decision as
all decisions go in my groove,
it was for the best 
as it turned out, 
she was with me all the way, 
in my corner standing strong, 
singing my song, holding fast 
when it mattered and, 
even when I didn't to myself,
now I always take her with me.

ยฉPaul Vincent Cannon

  6. I’ve just been through a horrendous week, and your words reminded me of the angel nurse that was at my side – oh how that human connection is so essential. Thanks for this Paul.

  8. To hold someone in one’s heart is a true comfort, even when they are no longer of earthly matter and a bond that will never be broken. Your words touched me deeply. โค
