I Took A Hand In Mine Today!

I took a hand in mine today…

But holding tight I found that hand grown cold…

For it was of an old friend now passed away…

And holding tight my tears did flow…

As I felt and saw from memories trove…

The many days we’d shared and cared…

And known each other’s joys…

But I was here to say goodbye…

Knowing those times were not enough…

But of late we’d let world and duty fill our lives…

And stayed away with hardened heart…

When but with a moment’s thought…

We could have seen the folly of all we’d lost…

And found the time before all was gone…

For holding hands still warm with life and love…

And with laughter bright and hugs of joy…

We could have shared so much…

But the truth was there in hands grown cold…

We’d lost our way and went astray…

From all that could have been…

So terry not to see those who mean so much…

And hold them close and hug them long…

For time does take its toll…

And hands too soon grow cold!
