Tokens of affection

Every night I tuck your words

Under my pillow

To feel your presence by my side

To ward off fears and misgivings

To make me feel cared for and warm

To keep me company in the dreamland

And infuse magic in my life

Every morning I caress your words with my eyes

And feel them kiss me back

They stay with me throughout the day

Speaking to me, guiding me

Hugging me and watching me with longing

Till you send a new set of words

To replace them

They keep me company

Till ’tis time for us to meet.

    1. Aw Gina, your delightful, naughty words made me smile broadly!! If only emails could be tied in a hanky! I miss those days of letters arriving by post. Thank you so much dear for brightening my day. 💕

  2. This is such a beautiful piece and is now at the top of my favourite Punam poems. Words, we can take anywhere, anytime. Just gorgeous!
