Free Verse Poem Take a Flower in Your Hand

“Free Verse Poem Take a Flower in Your Hand,” courage comes in being strong when everything else falls.

In, “Free Verse Poem Take a Flower in Your Hand,” we find the holidays and everyday life can bring challenges and struggles that can tear at the very core of one’s spirit. I have been in this place too. But the support of wonderful friends and family, and searching deep, deep within myself and grasping for hope changes my whole perspective.

Yesterday, I wrote about being blue through the holidays. It was my boyfriend who noticed my silence and reached out extending a flower of hope and tenderness. And his sweet smile along with a hug. It made my day! Do you sometimes get in that place?

Free Verse Poem Take a Flower in Your Hand

Oh so, your tears they show.
I know you have never felt so much pain.
But smile darling, be strong,

Hang on, hang on to the colors of life.
They’re there.

Take a flower in your small hand,
inhale the fragrance, let it linger on.

Let the rain fall; it will be Ok
What may seem so big, is yet so small.

Look long, see the beauty in the pain
Look long; colors are in the rain.

Just take the flowers you hold
Hang on, hang on to the magic of hope and life
and paint the sky with your smile.
