I am a writer. I love to write. I feel words have a way of connecting people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Source

I remember when we first met,
how I felt when you held my hand,
the taste of your kisses on my lips,
the sound of your voice in my ear,
the anticipation of anxiously waiting to see you.

In those early days I had no idea
my feelings for you would grow strong enough
to want the comfort of your arms
embracing me through each step of my life.

I thought my feelings
might slowly fade away
over the years,
yet today, years later, here I am still wanting to hold your hand,
the look in my eyes still glistening
each time I see you,
as I anxiously look forward to spending each new day with you.

"I Want To Hold Your Hand" by the Beatles

        Thanks Ann. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed the video I posted with this one.

        Yes, the Beatle's songs are great, older, but familiar tunes.

        I so enjoy holding hands, it brings forth a connection like no other.

        Lovely poem, Brenda, expressing what many of us feel if we're lucky enough to find true love.

        Brilliant choice of song to accompany it! One of their best - I prefer the rawness of The Beatles' older songs.

        Yes, Amani. Holding hands with one another gives us a special connection. It is the human touch that counts.
