Please Hold My Hand..... Poem by Khairul Ahsan

Please Hold My Hand.....

Rating: 4.9


Trudging along the slippery path of life,
If I ever slip to the ground,
Please extend a hand of yours,
For me to hold and turn around,
To be on my feet again, leaving the ground.

If I stray and stroll on a wrong path,
Just raise your hands and not voice,
And signal me to come back home,
Rush I will, abandoning the roam,
Like a dumb animal, to bear the wrath.

If you want to share a private whisper,
Just a soft touch on my hand will do,
If words run out, hold my hand and cast a look,
My eager ears will no doubt pick the clue,
Then and there, from your touch and stare.

If and when I lie speechless, in my final hours,
Darling please hold my hand and look at my face.
With your touch, I shall smile and say goodbye,
And slowly pass away in sublime grace,
Hands still clasped, my soul will be in the eternal space.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
Holding hands is very important in communication. Hands connect hearts. Clasped hands are a symbol of strength, comfort, fondness and compatible companionship. When two souls talk and walk with hands held, even the angels stop their business and listen! If just a conversation is a melody, a conversation with held hands is a symphony.
(Just my own views I wanted to share!)

@ Patricia Grantham, Except in the first and the last sentence, my thoughts are echoed in your words. Thank you. Yes, a look, a touch, a smile can convey deep emotions and love. Rightly said.

You wrote this beautifully and filled with compassion. A kind touch, a tender smile or a glance from the eyes all of these convey emotions that can be breathtaking. Even in the final hours of life they can convey a love so deep. A thoughtful write that touched my heart. Well done.
