Poem Written by Mary Heaven

Hands are portals to our hearts, they are an extension of the way we love.

Think about it. How many times has someone been transformed by the gesture of a loving hand extended to them?

A hand says, hold me while we cross the road, I will keep you safe.

A hand says, I yearn to interlock our fingers, I love you.

A hand says, let me be the guide, I will detect what is causing your pain, I can heal you.

A hand says, it’s nice to meet you, I am so happy to have crossed paths.

A hand says, let’s us pray, May the lord be with you and also, with you.

A hand says, it’s a girl, would you like to hold your daughter?

A hand says, with this ring - I thee wed. I want to spend my life with you.

A hand says, if you fall I will catch you, be not afraid.

A hand says, I will build you a home, I will grow you a garden, I will fish for our fuel. I am here to nourish you.

A hand says it all, without us needing to say anything at all.

Please remember this, we are way more powerful than we have been ever led to believe. You are capable. You are sovereign. You are whole. And, the power is in your hands.
