Holding On
by Collette Ann Perry

I sit here in a puddle of tears,
why do I hold on?
I cry time and time again,
why do I hold on?
I think of you all thru the night,
why do I hold on?
You made me feel so warm,
so loved, so wanted,
why do I hold on?

I toss and turn dreaming of you,
why do I hold on?
You made an impact in my life,
why do I hold on?
You always made me smile,
why do I hold on?
You hold my heart in the palm of your hand,
why do I hold on?
I miss you so much, it tears me up,
why do I hold on?

For the love, you gave me I can not replace,
For the smiles we shared,
For the tears that shed,
For the times you cared,
For the nights we talked till dawn,
For the hugs you gave, (till your arms went numb)
For my heart.. my soul.. my life,
That is why... I hold on
