Place Your Hand Against the Glass

Place your hand against the glass
as I will mine, finger to finger,
thumb to thumb.

Mouth the words, “I love you,”
but don’t drop your mask.
I can see your lips in my mind.

I remember every molecule
of your pretty face, your eyes.
I will never forget.

I never saw it ending like this.
Live for me fiercely even if
I can no longer live for myself.

Place your hand against the glass,
heart to heart, soul to soul –
Your holy touch saved me once.

    • Thanks. Yes, it is sad and I’ve struggled with being so relentlessly downbeat, but it’s hard to sunshine and butterflies with all that’s going. I got that image in my mind and couldn’t get it out until I wrote it out. Someday life will be good again.
