Mom, your hands have shaped and molded me

In them, you hold the story of my life

No other hands on this earth can hold this for me

   No others will

 For this, I thank you

 For this, I love you


a lifetime of memories

are in your hands

Of soft velvety newborn skin
And holding books

for little eyes to see

Of making a thousand

favorite sandwiches

And wrapping presents

to celebrate special days
