Crying Hands

These once youthful, nimble fingers

Have pinned diapers on your behind

Swatted the misbehaving toddler

When you got out of line

Held your hand on the first day of school

Applauded loudly as the graduate passed

Waved goodbye when you moved on to face the world

Prayed for your happiness to last

Used words to paint my memories

So you might know how it all began

But now these once so nimble fingers

Can barely hold my pen

So I want to tell you one last time

Before these hands of mine go

I’d like to give you one last rhyme

To tell you how I love you so
