Loving Hand [Poem]

Thursday 20th February 2014.


47hi[1]         Loving Hand       48hi[1]

Loving Hand.

Looking into peoples eyes, seeing their pain.

Their souls shining through, a shining star.

Hearts are strong, holding back the rain,

Seeing that the end of the road is not too far.

Each and every moment, smiling between the tears.

Emotions are high, stress often taken hold.

Imaginations are wild, open to all ones fears.

Even when asleep unwanted dreams unfold.

Words of wisdom always spoken with care,

Seemingly from the lips of people who know best.

Obeying and listening we must always beware

Tapping your shoulder, and becoming his guest.

The hand of love reaches down to touch your crown,

Trying to comfort and take your tears away.

Slowly, oh so slowly drifting and floating down.

Grabbing and hugging seeing you through each day.

  7. Gerry, this is such a beautiful poem — and so moving. I’m glad you were able to write it during that time, when your feelings were acute and especially sensitive to all these experiences. It’s sure to be a comfort and encouragement to many people.

    • I wrote a journal as well and did find such a great therapy. I hope they would work for others in a similar situation. It wa all so sudden for me. The poems were especially emotive for me. I will soon have enough to think about another booklet.. Welcome
