Touch a life
a heart
a soul
With kindness
understanding
and peace

Allow yourself to be touched
Whether soft as a butterfly's wing
Or sut to your depths like a razor

We are after all human
A soul encased in a shell
Which finds touching pleasurable
From the firmest handshake
To the tenderest kiss

We are creatures of sensation
Touch and be touched
And in the touching
Come alive

 Words are my medicine.
Read and live and love and heal!

I agree! A touch can mean so much! Lovely poem!

And slight is the sting of his trouble
Whose winnings are less than his worth;
For he who is honest is noble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~

E: (Your name is too long at this time of night..*g*)

"Touch and be touched
And in the touching
Come alive"

I do so agree and the smallest of words can become giant parts of our memories as well, add that to touch and the memory becomes unforgettable..

 Don't ask me where I'm going, just listen when I'm gone and far away you'll hear me singing softly to the dawn.

Hello,
There are moments when a touch is the only response that's needed and it speaks more than words.  Really enjoyed your poem.  It took me back to a special moment.
Danny
