Do you feel my arms around you
Need for physical contact to remember
Can you feel my tears mingling with yours
Sharing your sadness and grief.
For the pain, the loss
In your life.
Do you know you are loved though
Human to human
Woman to woman
One love in life.
Close your eyes and wrap arms,
Around self and know that it’s me,
Hugging you closely, gently
And loving the humanity of you.
Know you’re loved by others still
Distance merely an illusion.
Your needs are my needs.
The needs of the world.
Hugs and love from far away.
For Rene, especially. A very special lady. Fighting through pain and adversity with courage and humour.
And also for all who need the hugs. We all do.
