Three Marriage Poems 3

Marriage

 In marriage you have exchanged hands
Your hands for his hands
Weak hands for bold hands
Vulnerable hands for shared hands
Tense hands for loose hands
Cold hands for squeezed hands
Uncertain hands for firm hands


Her hands for your hands
Your hands for his hands
Hands to affirm you
To lead and to nudge you
Open hands to receive you
Hands to touch and caress you
And to circle words of love with you


Your hand in his hand
Two hands in God’s hands
In life and in death
