Five minute Friday - hold

Every Friday we unite for five minutes to write on one word. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second-thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on hold.

Your hand,
your face,
you close.


Your embrace,
your smooches,
your love.

Your smile,
your laughter,
your giggles.

Your worry,
your fear,
your concern.


Your wants,
your heart,
your future.

Your childhood,
always your childhood...

I hold it all close to me.
It's safe with me, in this little home we created together.
It's all safe here.

I will one day let go of this hold.
I will especially let go of your hand,
but the hold you have on me and my emotions,
it's real, and it's forever.


I will carry you with me always,
I will carry you in my heart.

I will carry you with me always,
I will carry you in my heart.



  1. Oh so beautiful! What moving words and pictures, Sabrina. Your post makes me eager for the school day to come to an end quickly so that I can hold my girl and take time to cherish her 🙂

  2. Leah says:

    Well done!
    Great photos and beautiful simple words to accompany them.
    The fleetingness of childhood is that immeasurable foundation that for better or for worse launches us into adulthood...that last much, much longer than childhood.
    Happy 5minfri
