  1. Touch

    So we start again
    Standing up, having fallen
    Kids toddling from scratch

    With wild dreams to remember
    One day being loved
    Not much to ask for

    Like Baked Alaska
    On piping hot treacle sponge
    Your ice hands on me

    I count your fingers
    Hear your laugh, jabbing my ribs
    Feel ten toes landing

    Old face, worry lines
    We caress and we embrace
    Still loving our lives
