A Mother’s Touch

In heaven’s clouds

I think of you

I forgot to hold my gaze

long enough

so to pierce into your eyes

telling you how much

I love you

so to watch you smile

as I utter

words you already know

I forgot to hold your hand

while you walked

retelling your heart tales

so to remind us

this path we stroll

hand in hand

till eternity

where separation

exists not

I forgot to embrace you

moments longer


before I departed

this time

a door called nostalgia

opened itself

ushering me into

her lounge

all I knew was scent

smiles and glances

laughter concealed

with memories

of yesterday


I long for

the warmth

of your nurturing


forever a child

in your presence

grace me more

craving the softness

of a mother’s touch

a father’s embrace

what more

shall I say
