Touching 2.

At the time it was nothing special

Just a shake of the hand,

Or a clasp on the shoulder.

With friends and family a hug,

With loved ones a kiss on the cheek,

With your lover a kiss on the lips.

But all that is missing now,

Certainly missing for me.

Only me in the house,

Left with memories,

Memories of hugs and kisses.


What many do not realise

Is that touching is a memory,

And in these days

Touching is not allowed.

So many memories

Will not be made,

Made for our future,

From these Strange Times.
