The nearness of you

by Errol Mondell   Feb 25, 2018

I woke up this morning
with feelings of despair
the warmness of your body
was no longer there

I turned on my side
and reached out for you
as I opened my eyes
I felt empty and blue

An empty space is what I see
it was just me and no you
your soft skin I wanted to feel
the warmness of you and me

Running my fingers across your back
down your thighs and back to the top
giving pleasure as you mourn
pampering you more and more

This I know you truly miss
like the soft and tender kiss
around your neck and to your lips
oh my darling it’s you I miss.
