postheadericon My Child's Hands

My child's hands,
So delicate and fair.
It doesn't matter
If they aren't a matching pair.

Her fingers are gentle
As they brush my cheek
To leave the imprint
Of a kiss so sweet.

My child's hands
Reach out to greet
With only a trace of shyness
To those she meets.

A crooked pinky
She's not aware
She doesn't hesitate
To wave in the air.

My child's hands
So small in mine.
As we walk together
Our steps keeping time.

Her fingers, smooth as silk,
Like fragile flower petals,
Rests softly in my hand.
So tender, sweet and gentle.

My Daughter's hands,
Precious gift given to me,
To care for, to cherish
A treasure to my heart will forever be.
