[Poetry] Adore

I have held many hands before,
Soft hands, rough hands, and others more,
But when I’m holding your hand in mine,
You are everything I’ve ever wished for.

    • Thank you so much! So glad you enjoyed! And yes, we hold others’ hands all the time, whether it be the hands of a friend, a lover, or a family member, and so I thought I’d try to capture some of the magic in that moment 🙂

  1. one of the simplest and most ordinary gesture yet the one that speaks so much about how someone values us. we hold a child’s hand to guide them, an older person’s had to show respect and honour and then this, you write of the most beautiful hand holding moment, whether in friendship or passionate love, the hand you are holding is also holding yours in a beautiful connection, for as you end the poem it is all you could ever wish for. the simple ordinary beauty of a genuine connection between two people. Love your simple lines, they reflect the kindness you bring to the world.
