OneWord: clasp

it is all too easy
to clasp hands
to meet another’s gaze
and speak words said
by a hundred hundred other souls

it is a far more difficult thing
to sit in silence
with only the sound of breath
to remind you of another’s presence
with no assurance that they will be present tomorrow
except the knowledge of your own heart
