Hold On

Written by Jacob Ibrag

‘It’s going to be

alright,’ she whispered as

they embraced. ‘I’ll be your

life jacket. Hold on to my love

and I swear we won’t get lost

in this sea of bitterness.’

  15. You work always reminds me of how stunningly less can be more. I am a bit of a rambler but always admire how you can be so evocative in just a few sentences. You have a gift for getting right to the heart of the matter.
