I turn and watch
observe and absorb his actions.
This man sits tall and proud
aged with wisdom.
His hands cradle a Bible between them
oh so carefully.
On one single finger
A band of love is worn with meaning.
These are the tanned and worn hands
of a hard worker.
Strong and powerful
yet comforting.
These hands are the unseen force
that keep me safe.
Though these hands are gone
they still guide me.
Why'd you have to leave?
"To be with God."
