my mother’s hands

July 18, 2009

i loved looking at my mother’s hands.

i would stare at them for hours while she slept.

as i got older her hands began to make me sad.

and i feared i’d never see them age.

my mother always laughed at the funny things i said.

and she said she’d always be around anyway.

but i wanted her hands.

i wanted to see them age.

it wouldn’t be fair.

to she nor i.

wasn’t that the point of having hands?

to see them age.
