The Firmness of His Handshake
His ears needing assistance
his eyes struggle some too
his legs ache so
But the firmness of his handshake
something deep within him
his looking me in the eye
a way of speaking for him
a deep loving word
shared in his focus
his meeting me,
in the firmness of his handshake
