A Legend's Handshake

A legend's handshake
Carries with it
Blood of the wounds suffered
From all their fights
Sweat from the rigorous
Toiling and working to make something out of every minute
And tears from the loss
Though sometimes of the wins
That lady luck has graced them with
Yet you never see it
On their faces
But can feel it in their presence
Hear it in their voices - their songs
Touch it in their art
All usually in retrospect
But when you can
Appreciate & honor them in prospect
Hold those hands
Accord them all the respect
They deserve
Coz you are holding
Touching life's beauty & resilience
Maybe catching a glimpse of heaven
All in a legend's handshake
