With Soft Hands I Sigh

I wanna hold your hand by Josep Ma. Roselldd


my hands lightly linger...
to feel the splendor of you
eyes closed I trace your face
pausing to inhale your scent
lost in the moment of discovery

my hands gently tremble
to feel your heart beat with mine
eyes open I gaze into your soul
pausing to inhale a breath of life
finding my way in flickering light

my hands take hold of yours
to feel the warmth of your being
eyes blazing in a midnight fire
pausing,  I part my waiting lips
found within the hands of time

  3. lmao, the ninja wannabe sure got going.

    A moment like that is sure one that you want to remain in and have linger and linger, with each grasping finger.

    Love the logical development and the subsequent finality in the verse. All the more when emotions exceed the expected. Wonderful write Truedessa!

  14. When I read the first two stanzas I was picturing a mother and her newborn...then I read the ending and took another glance at the picture and realized how deep both loves must be, though different.
