Tango Lessons: The Embrace

The touch of another hand

The breath of another lung

The beat of another heart

The energy of another soul

The heat of another body

The embrace of another

The longing for a person’s touch

The exchange with another soul

The imprint left on my soul, in my heart

…of being held

…of being seen

…of being felt

What I once took for granted

given freely…

And received whole-heartedly…

has been taken away

the loss of my basic connection

now grieving.

To the day that I can once again hold another person

To receive their warmth

To give my love

To feel their breath

To communicate without words

To be in the embrace.

Written in time of COVID-19, week 5 of physical distancing.
