"Though much is taken, much abides; and though we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are; one equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield." -Lord Alfred Tennyson

Hands, clasped.

Then thrown around his neck, already receding.
Hands waving

Hands shaking.
Hands brushing away a tear,


Hands, fading.

It is sooo cool how just a few words, when put together to flow well, say so much! I agree this poem is really powerful. Keep writing. :)

I love how you never stated the meaning, but you know what it is when you read it. Really, really powerful.
