Held you when you were born,
Picked you up when you fell,
Cared for you when you were sick,
Fought for you when you faced danger,
Never let you go even in the darkest hours.
Toiled the land to fill your tummy,
Tucked you in bed at night,
Clenched when you did wrong,
Wiped your tears away when you cried,
They never let you fall.
Age tenderly folded itself in the contours of those hands,
Those loving hands,
…always full with love
just for you…
