The Poetry Marathon 2022 – Hour 22
Original Poetry by DS Coremans
Sonnet – Moments of Tenderness
Moments of tenderness echo within;
making tea when I wake in the morning,
talking from night till the sun is dawning
or, just brushing my hand against your skin.
So many moments, where do I begin
before the moments I remember
are tender hugs one after another
their echoes have become a solemn hymn.
I will hold onto my tender moments
which you left to me with such abundance
as the precious gift they always will be
until the loneliness of life relents
and I create tender moments by chance
with someone that always remembers me.
