Hands trembling as I write this poem On cold chilly winter morning Dead silence ring in my ear Dim light by the fireplace,
Knotted together in this tiny house That we call our own Where love is shown, and hate is not allowed One second, turns into a minute, then an hour passes Of memories we create,
Knotted together, each heart beats its own rhythm Each mind begins with its own thought One word, one touch, one’s own work Walls listening, holding onto each story As if writing a book, of this family,
Knotted together, each eye sees a miracle May it be the little one reads, or an experience to be Two learning together, as history unfolds Asking questions, seeking answers of the unknown Each eye scrolls life, as a movie on a screen,
Knotted together, each ear hears the music of life If we all danced the same dance, life would be gone With no diversity, music to each ear would be dead Sounds of a piano, or the drums, each room cuddles the music As if it was making love, to our voices as we sing Knotted together, each one’s touch lingers forever Dozens of fingerprints, float through, but none alike Each finger, and thumb, is uniquely yours The soft touch of a hug, lingers All knotted as one.
