Holding Hands

Holding Hands

A Poem by Maddi Snowden

I'm not sure why,
but there is nothing more satisfying than
holding hands with someone
for the first time.

To feel the strength in their hands and
the way they run their thumb
in circles as if
trying to convey a secret message
that cannot be heard
through the air.

Maybe it's the way the fingers
intertwine or how
they could so easily let go
even though they won't.

Perhaps it is the simplicity
of it even though it
causes our minds to race
with a million possibilities
and a hundred futures.

And no matter why holding hands
is such a innocent and beautiful
gesture, I am thankful
to have held yours
for however short a while.

(M.S.)
