Her Small Hands

carefully smooth
and button the hangered shirt
from one more load

lift sports sections
from the newspaper to lay
at his breakfast

start the coffee
caress the bed, pillows, quilt
they rest under

kisses goodbye
a small hand touches his cheek
have a good day

years come and pass
hands rise to cover her ears,
heart, weeping eyes

kisses hello
how was your day? night hands on
his burning skin

Happy New Years Diane!!
Always,

I plan on picking up your book, wish I could order it directly through you as I'd love your kind words written on the inside flap of the first page. :)
May all find you well!
