In Safe Hands

In Safe Hands

You see your hands so wrinkled, skin no longer tight
You see your hands can't write without a wobble, be it slight
You see your hands are not so strong as they used to be
You see your hands can't reach that itch, so you scratch it on a tree

I see the hands which gently rubbed each bruise and bump I made
I see the hands which waved me off each time I holidayed
I see the hands which held on tight, kept me safe on windy days
I see the hands of love which care for me, in very many ways

Soon there'll be another who sees my hands like yours
I know I'll be there for them without a moments pause
But if you see me falter for sometimes things aren't planned
I hope that you will simply, lend a helping hand
