Mama's Hands

Forever imprinted in my mind-
Tasks of every sort and kind,
Monotonous and mundane,
Come sun, snow, or rain-
Mama's hands.

Caressing my feverish brow,
Showing me what to do and how,
Wiping away my tears,
Preparing meals over the years-
Mama's hands.

Holding my hand "just because,"
Running over my sweater to pick off the fuzz,
Showing me how to write
As well as how to tie my shoe tight-
Mama's hands.

Always willing to comfort
When I am hurt,
Forever offering a tender touch
That says, "I love you wo very much"-
Mama's hands.
