A Loving Touch

A loving touch
can mean so much . . .

On nights like this
I stay awake
for I could not bear
to dream of you again
not now

when your every wish
somehow turns into pain
before it ever reaches me

and I search this sky's infinity
for just a touch
of love from you

yet even as this love responds
I know that you are gone
for you choose to live within
your bonds of servitude

dismissing every mood
as irrelevant to life or love
or dreams that we have dreamed

yet on nights like this
a loving touch
would mean so very much
to me . . .
