Hold Me

I am the glow of health
        The irrepressible smile
            Of happiness
Fully alive
        In my body
                But not of it.
I am one of the sparkles
        Of the sun
                On the lake
A silent explosion
        On the surface
                Of the dark
                        The deep
I am the song
        My voice cannot sing
Hold me
        In the arms of your mind
                A perfect expression
                        Of well-being.
