Tonight - Poem by raquel stevenson

I sat here tonight,
having a moment of quiet.
You came in,
unannounced though welcome.
I felt you,
as I haven't in so long.
Tears began to fall,
as I embraced you.
I wondered,
can you still feel me?
Can my tears,
still dampen your pillow?
Does my sigh,
still brush against your cheek?
My kiss,
leave you in confusion?
I want to reach out,
yet fear is my accomplice.
Your new life,
dictates reality and respect,
Of the distance
you gave.
So I send these words,
adrift in the wind.
That they may,
settle on your pillow,
whisper across your cheek and
leave you looking my way with a gentle grin.

    Read these lines in a single breath. Absolutely superb!

    'So I send these words,
    adrift in the wind.
    That they may,
    settle on your pillow,
    whisper across your cheek and
    leave you looking my way with a gentle grin' - so touchy and so wonderful!
