Long Ago

It’s been a really
Long time since I felt
The need for you to
Hug me and tell me
It will be alright.
This week I needed that
As I kept doling it out
To my loved ones.
Their tears and hugs
Reminded me of my own
When you used to easily wipe
Them away with your love.
Though I know you’re
Quite capable of doing
So now, I am not so
Sure you would understand why
Or would remember
What I had just told you.
So I will keep that person
From long ago a memory in
My heart, safe from
The reality of today.

  1. Hi Robin,
    This is very touching. It reminds me to make sure my wife knows everything is alright. Sometimes all it takes is a look or a touch.
    I love reading your poetry.
    I ran into your blog at Jackie party.
    Thanks for the reminder.
