Gentle Touch

Author : Cadence Beret


A little itsy bitsy hand
Reached out to me
Until it touched my knee

It was your hand that reached to me
When you were less than three
In a time of sorrow
When my father left me

Your little itsy bitsy hand
Reached out to me
Until you touched my heart

So much love and understanding
From such a little person
The one who touched my knee
When you were less than three

A little itsy bitsy hand
Reached out to me
Until it touched my knee
