Tiny Hands

it was only a TV show, not really church,
not really...
but no one told you, so you sang anyway
never mind the twisted tongue
you smiled - willing your flesh to honor your god
it was the only thing that made you smile by then.
and as you raised your tiny hands to heaven
i wondered how he saw your little face
and didn't heal the broken body

if not (why not, why not)

then why not take you by your tiny hands
and lift you to the sky...
who could see those tiny hands, after all
and not hold them?

In Loving Memory...
