fifty fifty

touching someone 
that is the key
touching someone
is the key to me
to lean on my shoulder
as you did yesterday
yes, i am sure
that this is the way
for me to reach 
for your hand
and you to grasp mine
to me that is to have
a little more of you
it is more than your hand
but part of your soul
i hold it as if it were pure gold
the story that is told
is poetry in motion
as lovers unfold
and enclose their notions
anytime anywhere
you know i'll be there
kind of devotion
each one knowing 
what the other would do
run to me as i run to you
be with me as i am with you
reach for me as i reach back
nothing on this earth
can ever beat that

    It just gets better if that is possible! What sweet words to tuck away in the heart; to be read many times especially on a rainy day. Love, Lizzie
