My Two Hands-Sequel to A Grandmothers Hands

A Poem By Maddie J-3 // 3/22/2008

Looking down
At my hands
Wonder were
the time has gone

It seemed like yesterday
These two hands
Were small and helpless
A baby’s hands

I will never forget
When these two hands
Were learning to write
A little girl’s hands

I will always remember
When these two hands
Grasped hold of another
A wife’s hands

Memories that will endure
With these two hands
That held my children
A mothers hands

Such tender times
With these two hands
That hugged my grandchildren
A grandmother’s hands

These two hands,
Many things have passed
Are still used for worship
They are God’s hands

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you VERY much for the comment and for giving me the idea! You inspired me to look at things in such a different way, I have gone through every piece that I have written and thought about the view that I portrayed in it. Thank you so much!
Still learning,

Whoa, keep going! This is a neat sequel, I like the idea of a sequel to a poem. You're certainly progressing as a writer, Maddie, especially in poems. GREAT JOB!!
