I deeply adore her hands
It withstand the test of time
How did she earned its stripes?
Such a devoted mother and wife.
Hands that brings comfort, warmth
Always want me away from harm
It secures me when I’m in distress
Ever willing to clean my mess
And when my world have gone wild
Her touch reminds be to be kind
It may not be beautiful outside
Her gnarled hands, I take pride!
