With My Two Hands

by Sherry Lynn   Feb 10, 2007

With my two hands
I will do my best
To mold you gently
Above all the rest

With my two hands
I give you my heart
Freely for the world to see
Allowing nothing to tear us apart

With my two hands
I promise to protect
Every hair on your head
No matter the cost; there is no regret

With my two hands
Every need of yours is met
I will do without
Making sure you are set

With my two hands
I will save many lives
Reaching deep within each chest
Pumping a heart so a body is fed

With my two hands
I will allow many to live
A life full of happiness
No pain left

With my two hands
I promise to give
All that I have
To all that I can

    In life there are rare chanced when someone think for someone...

    life is the name of hidden games. often i think that why there is so much rush of hate in the world

    Now this poem shows how much of a great person you are.
    This poem reminded me of a mother and a child. And how the mother would do anything for her child.
    I'm not sure if that is what you were getting at, but it is what i got from it.
    Whatever you meant, this poem is one you should be very proud of.

    That was amazing, definitely on my favorites now. It flowed very well and was a total attention grabber. It provoked thought on my part (some ppl say thats a miracle these days) as it struck me first as a mother's creed than later as if you were speaking as a nurse of some sort, all the while though displaying heartfelt compassion in every stanza. Really got enjoyment out of that one. 5 only because there is no 10!

    I really liked the second & third stanza . The promise in this is just ... wow . It`s sweet without being completely cheesy or totally ... cliche ? I think is the word ? But beautifully done (:
