Hands clasped in prayer
Friends on a journey
We travel together
On the road
Sharing life stories
Loves call to us
In different places
Yet brought together
In prayer through
The simple act of
Holding your hand
Blessing is given
And received
We are let go
To our separate lives
The temporary is
Displayed in the touch
Thanks for the hand
Offered in prayer
If only for a moment
Yet spanning eternity
