Two, not Three

October 3, 2008

My grandpa

used to squeeze my hand






3 times
"I love you"


his hands told me
But then

he died



of a


SUDDEN!



heart attack
I cried

when I told



my family



about the handshake
And they laughed



remembering
I was

offended
My cousin Sarah


did the handshake






with me
After he died
But I couldn't


do it
So I gave her


two, not three





squeezes
