In Appreciation of Hands

With these hands I do magical, ordinary things
Smooth cream on booboos
Stitch together a torn knee
Pluck a melody out on strings.
My fingers they bend, my thumb it does, too
I can caress you
Undress you
Make love with you, too.
They really are amazing this grouping called a hand
Holding pencil to paper
Painting a landscape
Or leading a band.
Hugging my dear ones and touching are my favorite things
Smoothing your curls
Touching your shoulder
Or handing you your wings.
My body is amazing and my hands are even more
Helping me show love
Helping me give love
And simply, kindly holding a door.
