My Hand

Take my hand.

Here is my hand.

Take it in yours.

Put it to your face

Against your cheek.

Brush it with your lips.

Caress it with your hair.

Put it to your chest.

Allow it to feel your heart beat.

Let it feel your love.

Hold it by your side.


Take my hand.

Twist it.

Squeeze it.

Hurt it.

Break it.

Throw it down.

Smash it.

Toss it aside.

Only you know.

What is in your heart.

Now choose what you want.

Please make the choice,

But choose wisely and well.

For having chosen.

You can only move on,

Together or alone.

Take my hand.
