Does your body ever… [POEM]

I am sure that your Mother does,
Your Dad is probably curious too
ran into one of Your friends yesterday,
assuming I’m still in touch with You…

but what I really want to see,
is if your body ever asks about me

like, in the middle of the day
does Your neck say, “I miss him”
when Your mind recalls our past
do Your lips ask, ” Can we kiss him”

if Your arms feel heavy
holding on to someone else
if Your hands can get held
all by themselves

does Your skin get the attention
that amazing always deserves
is Your hair being pulled
enough to calm Your nerves

are Your shoulders told to relax
while Your back is given rest
has Your stomach found a touch
that is as firm as My caress

have Your breast found support
that came from lips like Mine
while Your legs found their equal,
simultaneously intertwined

how is Your heart
has it been full since I left
is Your soul still being nurtured
is someone seeking out its depth

are Your insides being attended to
for all intents and purpose
is Your broken being mended too
are all Your senses working?

what about Your eyes
are they stared into relentlessly
is Your face held in the palm of a hand
while You are told to ask for anything

are You being bathed in dedication
are You a reason and not a right
do You get to say, “Good Morning”
after lying next to Your “Good Knight”

are Your dreams being considered
are Your wishes being fulfilled
have You been given Rest Assurance,
are You okay with being still?

are you as far away from lonely
as your spirit needs to be
are you satisfied with only
being given thoughtful things

So,

I am sure that your Mother does,
Your Dad is probably curious too
ran into one of Your friends yesterday,
assuming I’m still in touch with You…

but I really want to see,
if your body ever asks about me.
