emma’s hands

your little hands
are pudgy and soft
brown and wrinkly around the pink nails
your skin is so pretty
i hold your hands
and squish them
and kiss them

and i wonder what you will be
with these little hands

your little fingers
struggle with pencils
poise  careful above piano keys
clap at happy things
stroke cats softly
rub my back
fold to pray

and i wonder what you will be
with these little hands
