I cross the miles,
Span time, just for a touch,
Of all the things I like,
About you so much.
The gentle touch of your eyes,
Approaching the glass door,
The blush of your smile,
On finding mine once more.

Delicate, expressive,
The harmony of your voice,
Holding my interest,
Resonating, causing me to rejoice.

Touch seems so dynamic,
A very living thing.
As years go by,
One remembers everything.

The warm sensation,
Of our hand's first touch,
Already knowing,
That I wanted you so much.

Capturing a shy arm,
Holding me so close.
As hearts gently touched,
Any doubts you did dispose.

I've missed you so,
Since our time was without lack.
When your joy reached out,
To caress mine right back.

Guess I'll never know,
Where I went awry.
If my caring was too much,
My heart I could not belie.

To hold your hand again,
Would simply bring me bliss.
You're never far from my heart,
So let me just say this:

In each and every way,
I feel your touch.
I miss you still,
So very much.

This is romance with a capital RO, Richard. I like the image of being touched by her eyes. Don't think I've read that thought before...len

These are such beautiful memories Rich. A healthy acceptance is woven delicately throughout this piece. I'm happy to see the cream finally rise to the top Rich, you are on your way. There is always a nobility about your work...very classy.

Often it makes me wonder whether the pain of love gone wrong is worth the price in suffering memories...........but we do it again and again.........

I don't think you intended this to make me happy, but, Rich, I've smiled all the way through.  There's some magic in this poem.  Nice work, man.  ML
