POEMS: “Mother’s hand” by Trina Graves


Mother’s Hand


As a little girl I held your hand tightly
For the world was a scary place.
As the years went by our clasp loosened
As I became eager to explore
Then the day came that we both let go
And I was able to walk alone.

Whatever I have faced in my life
I’ve known your hand is always there
For me to hold, if I need.
The warmth of your love
And guidance of your hand
Has steered me through the crowd of life
To bring me through.

Now as the years pass
I hold my hand out to you
For I will always be there
If you ever need me.
Take my hand and together
We can walk the rest of the path.
