    I remember the scent of her  lotion
    and the feel of hands  after all this time
    I remember the curve of her forearm
    the way it lay upon mine

    Once I dipped my finger across the little jar
    and then touched her on the shoulder
    bending over for a   scent her neck
    and becoming a little bolder

    I remember how she looked up from dressing
    and her eye's began to smile
    we never made it to the dance that night
    yet we waltzed  just as well for awhile

    What is it about the touch of a woman
    what is it about her  scent
    Maybe just maybe it will last forever
    though forever  has come and went

      You could put this poem to music on your dobro or slide guitar!  And turn these poetic words into lyrics!
      ( Record on cassette player. )

      This verse would be a great chorus:

      " What is it about the touch of a woman?
        What is it about her scent?
        Maybe, just maybe, it will last forever ...
        Though forever has come and went."

      and I love the title: "Hand Lotion" smile

          Yep, old memories can sometimes keep us company. Reminds me of a poem I wrote last year sometime - Shadowy Dreams Keep Me Company ....

    Love your poem and the title. You could make it for advertisement.

    It was the scent of her Jergens Lotion
    reminding me of roses in the summer
    the softness of her skin
    making her touch so tender
