It’s been quite a while
Since I’ve had any intimacy
And quite honestly
I miss it

It’s not about sex
Which of course
Is a necessary component
But not the most important one

It’s about holding another
While we sleep peacefully
And waking together
Happy that we did

It’s about a walk on the beach
An intimate dinner
Holding hands and hugging
With a deep kiss at sunset

It’s about talking and laughing
Sharing a sad movie
Looking at each other
And seeing into our souls

But mostly it’s about
Knowing instinctively
That this is the one
Who is supposed to be here
