A shake of the hand

Feelings flow when hands touch attraction felt, love or friendship Sometimes distraction, used when speaking hidden from view, what is this action? A Mother’s call, hold my hand is it protection or keeping control A Father’s hand ruffles your hair showing his love and care A shake of a hand when saying hello another shake when saying cheerio A girlfriend a boyfriend when do you know? Walking along, hands never letting go feelings increase as time unfolds A wedding arrives, greetings galore shaking hands with some you do not know The firstborn, trace face and nose Fingers, an extension of hands well known Despite your age, hands still hold on fingers entwine, grip not letting go Holding the hands of a loved one In a two-handed grip, neither letting go The grip then triggers thoughts both understand the hidden content
