This Hand

Rating: 5.0
It feels so small and fragile
the fingers lithe and long.
Translucent skin like gossamer,
a hand once warm and strong.
A palm now lined with living
and joints that ache and creak.
This hand was always giving
me strength when I was weak.
It lies within my own now,
I cradle it with care,
this hand that used to guide me
here, there and everywhere.

Dedicated to my lovely Mum

I am so glad you love your mother so dearly. I loved mine and still do though I can no longer hold her hands in mine. Your words brought back so many memories.
