I hold your hand and clasp it

as if it were the only thing I can hold on to,

as if it is my only way out to the world.

I clasp your hand wanting to communicate to you

with a single touch all the tenderness,

the love and the kindness I have in my heart for you.

I clasp your hand wanting to give you

everything you need without saying a single word.

I clasp your hand wanting to tell you

that I will be here when ever you need me

and for as long as you want me to...
