Patti Morelli

Author        Poet

Just your touch let someone know you cared

You held my children as they laid in my arms

You wipe the tears of so many not only mine

You caressed the many loves we shared

You struck when I lashed out

You took the pen and wrote my words

I look down at you are now wrinkled, marked and lined

Once you were pure, smooth and flawless

Every imperfection reveals the life we have lived

These hands are the reflection of my life
