Poem: I Still Want to Hold Your Hand

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

I still want to hold your hand is a poem about sharing life with someone. When you first meet you enjoy his/her company. You want to hold his/her hand. Even after years pass you still want to hold his/her hand. You anxiously look forward to sharing each new day together.

"I Want To Hold Your Hand" by the Beatles


I Still Want To Hold Your Hand

She remembers when they first met,
how she felt when he held her hand,
the taste of his kisses on her lips,
the sound of his voice in her ear,
the anticipation of anxiously waiting to see him.

In those early days she had no idea
her feelings would grow strong enough
to want his comforting arms
embracing her through each step of her life.

She thought her feelings
might fade away,
yet today, years later, she still wants to hold his hand,
the look in her eyes still glisten
as she anxiously looks forward to sharing each new day of their life together.

Nothing in this world compares to the comfort and security of having someone just hold your hand.

— Richelle E Goodrich

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.

Ann Carr from SW England on July 24, 2019:

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.
