The hands that gave you bounties, rocked your cradle too
The hands that wiped your tear drops are the hands that fed you too. Mother
The hands of an artist sculptured, your dreams into tangible true
The hands that endured hammers so you would have a flawless few. Artisan
The hands that weave the carpet, your feet to feel soft and warm
Are the hands that bear as witness their own set of warps & weft. Weaver
The potter molds his earthenware and the mason builds brick by brick
The dried parched cracks that their hands endure, on their creation are amiss. Mason
The hands that bless the world, comfort, care and protect
Wake up to the realization you are but the hands that put you there. Faith, Teacher, Family & Friends
