I Hold You Close…Once More

~~~

It’s been raining for some time,

a soft gentle rain…

The kind we liked.

~

 We would sit on the porch for hours and talk.

 Sometimes, we would just sit,

no words needed.

 ~

The sound of the rain was soothing to us.

The closeness of each other

was our comfort.

 ~

Now it’s raining again just like it used to.

There are no words,

but the ones I whisper in my heart to you.

 ~

I hold your favorite shirt close to me.

There is no comfort

 beside your memory.

 ~

You must be smiling to see me sitting here

with this memory bear…

this softness in my arms.

 ~

I am thinking of you.

I close my eyes… I hold you close,

once more.
