Today’s Short #Poem 275

She was always there with a word
or a smile and so it was this time
as I set off on the longest journey
of my life

I felt nothing save the gentle
pressure of her hand –
this is my parting gift, she said
and touched her fingers
to my chest

I have turned now
and face the homeward journey
That place
where she touched my chest
is calm and warm
