The lazy finger of dawn curls my hair
and brushes against my face
and I am back on a fog ridden road
from long ago….when you walked on ahead
leaving my hand still curled around yours
clutching to the warmth of your fingers.
Your footsteps faded and became still
your voice spoke only in my head
as I followed you then, as I search for you now
in strange cities, in the mist of the hills
certain that one day I will turn that corner
and you will be waiting there.
And I will be a child once more
and throw myself into your arms
and you will lift me up and hold me
and this time…… This time
my hands will remain
forever curled up in yours.

This is such a beautiful, haunting poem!
Amazing. This made me think a lot about death and loved-ones I’ll see again one day… Good luck with the rest of the challenge.
I loved this. It could be interpreted so many ways. It made me think of my grandmother and the comfort she always provided and how I wish I could hold her hand one more time and be in that safe haven of her unconditional love.
It’s a beautiful ode to romance and intimacy:)
