My Grandmother's Hands

by Sandra du Plessis


In my grandmother's hands, I'm calm
she means no harm;
her wrinkled hand
does understand.

She knows my plans and tries to stop
before it flops;
she makes me food
then I am rude.

She closes her nose, yells, 'oh no!'
and cleans below;
she does it all
she never stalls.

Example:
I Need Someone

I need someone to hold me tight
Through dark of night,
Who won't go 'way
At break of day.

Someone whose love will mend the seams
Of broken dreams,
And give me back
The trust I lack.

For love, it holds the magic key
To set me free,
To heal my soul
And make me whole.
