I miss you...

Source



How I long to touch you

And give myself to you once more

Touch me

Come, take my hand

Let's be very gentle

And take care...

Our hearts are made of glass


Stroke my hair

and watch my eyes dissolve

Let me trace your face with fingertips

And kiss your familiar skin

Lay your head on my breast

And..."come home"


If we could touch

just once more

I could live

Again.

Those words shared by lovers entwined forever and lost in the depth of each others embrace. Yet to find ones soul mate for life eternal sometimes never. Life then passes you by and alone we spend in eternity. I pray that you will soon fly together not solo. Peace and hugs

MFB 111 ~ thank you for your comment - I guess most of us have lost someone we love deeply and eternally; the ache of not having their physical presence is an agony you seem to relate to.. thanks for sharing.

saddlerider1 ~ entwined forever on a soul level, but when one leaves this life before the other, the loss is excruciating. They say it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.. Thanks for your comments - peace and hugs back to you!
