YOUR HANDS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I love your hands
Last Line: ............. Even if you forgot.
Subject(s): Hands


I love your hands:
They are big hands, firm hands, gentle hands;
Hair grows on the back near the wrist ....
I have seen the nails broken and stained
From hard work.
And yet, when you touch me,
I grow small ...... and quiet ......
............. And happy .........
If I might only grow small enough
To curl up into the hollow of your palm,
Your left palm,
Curl up, lie close and cling,
So that I might know myself always there,
............. Even if you forgot.
