Email Poem | Today's Poetry

  These Two Hands
Before me lay two hands that held
The past where once in love we fell
The test of time they once withstood
Today feeling they wish they could

Wish for her that once was here
Her we loved today they fear
They'll never feel what once was felt
Her pearly face, cruel past, love dealt

They ache just like our heart in song
Painful sharp stings so wrong
They crave no less, hunger for rest
Upon where once they felt the best

Holding the hand that charged our soul
Brushing back hair they ran and stole
A moment rare just like her treasure
Today their loss, once greatest pleasure

They touch with fingers all five some ten
Each nook and cranny when then was when
A better time not to return
Today they wring alone and burn

The midnight oil day and night
They task with simple things and fight
With one another, seeking to blame
Where right holds left, just not the same

my tiny ring in eston\'s hand
