The Human Touch

As I struggle daily

Just to stay alive

Doing all that I can do

So that I may survive


I find myself reflecting

On memories of the past

The times we were together

Who knew they would not last?


You’re no longer with me

Here upon this earth

My life forever changed now

I’m losing my self-worth


Pictures, poems, and videos

Don’t do very much

I find myself longing

For your soft and gentle touch


The snuggling, cuddling

Spooning day and night

Holding hands, hugging

Squeezing so very tight


All of these are gone now

They were my daily crutch

Cold, lonely and afraid

I miss them very much


You would take me in your arms

To calm me on bad days

Bringing me great comfort

As our bond put out the blaze


Aside from me missing you

Of which nothing can compare

The loss of the human touch

Is like breathing without air
