Do You Remember?

Written for Haibun Monday – A Little Romance. Don’t we all have those moments we lock away for a rainy day?


There was no design, or plan. No thought of what might happen. It was just a touch, just an accidental touch.  I reached for a glass, he reached for his, skin touched skin and just then, just for a moment, I knew it wasn’t over.

I can’t remember where we were or even who we were with. I can’t remember the song that was playing or what was in my glass. But I remember the touch.

Too afraid to let go, yet too afraid of what it meant. We didn’t move our hands.

That night we left together.

Over twenty years later I can still feel that touch. I don’t know where you are, or what you’re doing now. But I like to think you feel it too.


A moment to feel,

A lifetime to remember,

Some hurts never mend.

  1. This is so nice. reminded me of such moments I have had.
    This is from a poem I wrote 40 years ago….

    just could seem to capture that everlasting song
    because the evelasting moment
    is permenantly gone.

  2. Oh wow! This is heartbreakingly beautiful. </3 It still remains a mystery on how such a beautiful beginning could end up tragically. I hope your heart mends.
