HOLDING HANDS

IN YOUTH, WHEN THEY WERE SOFT,
YOU HELD MY HANDS.
AND WE HELD HANDS
AS WE EXCHANGED OUR WEDDING BANDS.

AS THE CALLUSES FORMED,
WE MET LIFE'S TESTS.
WE HELD HANDS,
LIVED LIFE AT ITS BEST.

THANKS FOR HOLDING MY HANDS
AS THEY BECAME SOFT AGAIN.
MY DEAR WIFE,
MY TRUE LOVE,
MY BEST FRIEND.
