    Non touch of love

    close your eyes as you rest
    your head in my lap today
    so that I can ease the stress
    with my loving embrace;

    allow your mind to wander
    into places of peace and pure
    voice of serenity so that we
    can play amongst the grass;

    as I watch you find comfort
    and your head becomes heavy
    i gently pull your hair allowing
    it to dictate my hands direction;

    i stroke your hair until you smile
    assuring me you have accepted
    my touch and your cove of peace
    has been located in your rest;

    when I hear you release a slight sigh
    i slowly lift my hand from your hair
    continuing the stroking movement
    yet moving away with each stride;

    another sigh assures me you have
    not noticed that I no longer touch
    you in the physical sense but now I
    have entered your place of comfort;

    with my hand just a few inches away
    from your skin I slowly release into
    you the aura of my emotions as I move
    my hand slowly across your face;

    i see the smile appear when I trace
    the outline of your lips without the
    physical touches and looks to see you
    respond so willingly to my every move;

    then you let out a stronger sigh when
    you feel my hand move over your left
    shoulder and slowly down your arm to
    your hand which opens to meet mine;

    I smile when you open your eyes you
    discover that I am no longer sitting
    with your head in my lap but I am in
    the chair sitting across the room

    With my hand closed in the form of yours…

    ...and an excellent job you've done at doing so

    This poem was enthralling...yet mystically alluring
    as if...the readers head was actually in the lap
    of love and hair being stroked...

    Your writing style is so vivid and open...
    but with a depth...that you do not feel coming
    until...you open your eyes and look back
    at the distance to which it has brought you...

    In awe...of this journey
    Poetry can too...be greater than what it appears to be

    This was tender and oh so sweet. Hadn't read you in a while. What a relaxing way to "wander" into a channel of love...reading you. :welldone:
