Here are some handprint poems...maybe one will work for you!
I miss you when we're not together
I'm growing up so fast
See how big I've gotten
Since you saw me last?
As I grow, I'll change a lot,
The years will fly right by.
You'll wonder how I grew so quick
When and where and why?
So look upon this handprint (these handprints)
That's hanging on your wall.
And memories will come back of me,
When I was very small.
Sometimes you get discouraged
Because I am so small
And always leave my fingerprints
On furniture and walls
But every day I'm growing --
I'll be grown some day
And all those tiny handprints
Will surely fade away
So here's a little handprint
Just so you can recall
Exactly how my fingers looked
When I was very small
"This little hand will never stray.
It will always stay this way.
When I'm big and far away.
This little hand with you will stay."
This is my hand
My hand will do
A thousand loving things for you
You will remember when I am tall,
That once my hand was just this small.
