Tender Touch

I haven’t known
A tender touch
In so long,
That I almost
Forgot what it
Felt like.

I haven’t heard
A tender, loving word,
In so long,
That I almost
Forgot what it
Sounded like.

But you showed up
Out of nowhere.

A moment,
Unexpected and

My love,
Where did you come

How did you know
That I needed you?

You, a breath of fresh
Air in the night.

The sunshine to my

Who are you?

How did you know
That I craved you?

You tore
Through the tangled
Mass of my heart,
To find me,
To save me
And remind me
What love still feels like.

You brought me out
Of my solitude.
The cave I had
Entombed myself in.

You lifted the stone
That weighed down
My soul,
And set me free.

I don’t know the particulars
Of how you came into
My life,
But eternity smiles on
Me once again.

Because I have
You to thank for
My absolution.

I've always had a passion for writing. In this crazy world that we live in, I find my solace in made up words and make believe stories. Let's escape into the void and forget about it all just for a moment or two.
