Hold my hand


Is it weird to ask you

although we don’t know each other very well

to hold my hand

for a moment

so I can feel

someone cares

someone is there with the same blood temperature

someone is not a cold fish

Thank you nurse.

    As an ex-nurse I do understand very well the therapeutic benefit of just holding someone’s hand – often more beneficial than all the medicine!! πŸ™‚

    I liked this poem


    • Thank you! Your job (ex – job) is so important and good nurses are so valuable!

      One can feel very lonely in a hospital (or a home). Good nurses are aware of the well they can do with a simple touch. In the society I live, not every one dares to cross that sort of border, even family relatives are not always that affectionate, but I think because of the influence of Eastern European nurses that work here, it is getting more normal to hold a patients hand. πŸ™‚

    Ina, this is so moving.

    It certainly can make a difference just to have someone hold your hand.

    Love Christine x

  3. Thank you Christine! πŸ™‚ yes it can. {{{ hugs }}}

  4. Hold my hand. Give me a hug. Two phrases that mean so much when someone needs comforting. Your poem is excellent.

  5. {{{dan}}} πŸ™‚ thank you!
    (the internet hug here was not for comfort maybe, but just for hugssake )
