A touch, a whisper on the skin
Reminds her of a love grown dim
Combusts to flicker in the dark
Memories still hit the mark
Of his caress, like strokes of heat
Insinuate as her heart beats
Not lost to time, those years long gone
Remembers kisses cast upon
Frail fingertips that lift to soothe
A cheek once rounded, soft and smooth
They tremble as they stroke her lips
Navigate from breasts to hips
So long ago they had a life
He was her husband, she his wife
Her hearing lost, her vision dim
She hears his whispers on her skin

Ali, What a warm and sensitive love poem. You have captured beautifully a peek into the future of love if we are so lucky to live so long. A tender tribute. ~L

Sometimes, we get a glimpse of our Mamas as the women they once were. Those moments are true gifts to treasure.

Gave me the chills.  You write with raw emotion and such tender and true feelings.  I'm so happy to be reading you again Alison.
