Your hands are big -
much larger than mine.
They have a strong look to them,
but I know how gentle they can be.
Light glints off the gold circle.
I know that since I put it on your finger,
you have never taken it off.
The ring symbolizes the continuity;
the stability and solidity of our union.
Those words describe you, as well.
I can feel your hands on me now,
Sheltering, cherishing, caressing -
Wherever you are,
I am home.
