Almost

Found to read one person out of many:  You.
It’s you whose arms are the curtain,
And behind lies the world and the cold,
While here I read you, feel you, being
Almost a part of you. But not quite.

To have met one soul and understood,
What more could I have asked for?
The lines next to your eyes
And your hands, your skin: to touch.
Almost being one. But not quite.

  7. Beautifully expressed Ina and as others have mentioned, the “not quite” matters so much. You continue to pour your reflections as beautifully and delicately as ever. ❤️ Xxx
