I might find something less sad for Sacha’s writing prompt, but for the moment, this is what ‘the hug you’ve been waiting a long, long time for’ inspires.
There have been so many times,
Your arms around me, held so tight,
When I have thought heaven was mine,
In an embrace that fills the night.
Each time that tenderness, so sweet,
I just reach out and you are there,
Our bodies fit, match and complete,
Is almost more than I can bear.
But the deepest longing, never sated,
Beneath the bliss, a constant pain,
Is for those gone far beyond my loving,
All those I’ll never hold again.
