I hold onto being held –
let go without letting go.
Happiness is within reach
of open palm and spread arms
A closed hand makes a clenched fist,
which neither points or picks up
An extended hand shares life –
halving sorrows and doubling joy.
Embrace the Force that’s with us –
God’s presence is always present
Love is touching and feeling;
and hugging is hearts kissing.
The trees have leafy branches –
Elephants have flexing trunks –
Whales have soft underbellies –
All embrace our Mother’s love.
So to be heard listen well,
to be seen look carefully,
to be touched grasp intently,
to be loved share grace and peace.
