Here We Are

On April 6, 1998, I put the finishing touches on a new song.

“Hold On (Tight)” was my reaction to a time in my life, my family’s life, that was indeed filled with “dark, demanding days.” I wrote the song as a chronicle of how we – my wife and I – were coping, trying to do the right thing. I also wanted to point out the good stuff, the blessings we enjoyed and the hope I held out for the future, once the hard times went away: “I swear that up ahead I can see the light.”

So, here we are, 15 and 1/2 years later, living in that future. 

We survived.

The tears did indeed disappear and were replaced many, many times over by “laughter’s long embraces.”

Time is still a precious and elusive treasure.

We still “pillow talk and take our walks.”

We still “stand our ground with arms around each other.”

We’re still “pretty good at putting up a fight.” 

We’re still holding on.
