A hug

For a moment I think

of removing the words of the past

that might be hurtful for you

But you have felt their wake already

and I’d better learn from my mistakes

and offer you a hug of warmth and consolation

after having been so harsh to you

Can you feel my embrace

my kiss on your cheek

on your mouth

my hands caressing your head

your hair, your neck

your back

my body pressed on yours

can you see my smile

a beaming smile

in response to yours

I love you my dear

and I wish never to hurt you again
