Let Me Take Your Hand

When my daughter was married, she asked me to read some of my work at the ceremony. This was what I read …


Let Me Take Your Hand

 

Let me take your hand

And it will lie

In mine, beneath a bright new sky

Where we will walk.

 

Show me your smile,

And it will warm me through

The days that pass

Without you.

 

Lend me your eyes,

So I too may see

The world through love

When all is sad.

 

Teach me with your mouth

So I may learn to speak

Words of comfort,

Thoughts of joy.

 

Give me your heart

And I will treasure and protect it

From harm

All the days of our lives.
