Touch – Mam

Subtle tell-tale creases outline your eyes

And my finger longs to linger there

To share the stories softly etched

Unbridled laughter, earnest trace of care

.

I press my lips against your rough worked hands;

I’m five again, and I can feel the chafe

Your palm, clean water on my back

I know its warmth, or yours, and I am safe

.

The very things that reveal your humanity

And seal the letters detailing your days

Singing boldly, shirking vanity

They warm my skin like summer morning rays.
