I was tagged by RenuThe theme of the tag was Holding hands what it means to me.This a very interesting tag and made me really think about it, a flood of memories passed through my mind.I would like to share a few.

Holding my hand she takes me to school,
Crying,scared but comforted
by a strong hand,my mother.

Your hand in mine,feeling safe and secure
guiding me across a crowded street
My dad.

Holding hands singing together
my friends and I
Beautiful memories of time gone by.

Holding hands, forming a bond
The family stands together
weathering the storm.

Holding hands,not wanting to let go
When one has to leave loved ones
To travel to another shore.

The exciting feeling,
when i first held his hand.
A sense of love and belonging.
Walking beneath a starlight sky
I look up and see love in his eyes.

Holding hands
we look to each other for strength,
In a new country
As husband and wife.

Holding hands smaller than mine
A wave of love comes upon me.
these hands belong to me, to teach them,
to guide them and then set them free.
My children.

Reaching out
holding someones hand
comforting one another
Giving a helping hand.
Even strangers.

I loved your verses, beautiful!!

Id it is 4:11 PM  

I loved that bit a "to guide them and then set them free". The image of the restrainer who liberates is strangely uplifting...
How about a hand that reaches out to seek assurance and finds a hand that tentatively holds it?

For the first time am reading a tag that has been transformed into such a thoughtful poem. What would life be without all those hands that we hold on to and leave its mark on our hearts forever..Looking forward to read your posts from the beginning and read your other blog too. Wishing you all the best for your recovery...I don't know yet what surgery you had. Maybe will get to know abt it once I go through all your posts :)

Asha 10:52 AM  

I was so happy for Anoop too and double happy to see the end of Tatiana! :D
You know when Anoop turned to camera and said "I just want to say I am with you guys. Chapel hill is going thru' tough time today!".
It was his classmate's one year death memorial that day and she was killed by a teenager who robbed her, took her SUV and shot her dead just outside the college last year. All for money!
She was about to go to Medical school after few months. Same teenager killed a Indian student from Andhra at DUKE U too, a year before but never got caught until this girl was killed.
I was so sad for Anoop and all the kids in Chapel Hill. Trisha is moving in there to Chapel Hill this August.
