the hands reach out to hold on

put the pieces back together

hold it together

the hands surround 


each one giving warmth

each one giving strength

the hands soothe

the hands calm

the hands centered around the body

place hands and hold 

they do so until there is no more

they bind together 

bring it all together

and make the broken whole again


body is whole again

the light within her hands

in her cupped hands


yet through each line in between 



the light shining through 

making her hands 

appear as if glowing red


she opens her hands

revealing the light inside 

and it is a gift from somewhere

so mysterious 

you could say 

far off

it is a gift she’s given us today

to brighten the world

to brighten the mood

to part the clouds

and twist rainbows around trees branches
