by Linda Jones Hawkins

Not just a minute
But a quick hug
A split second full of love.

Delayed and held close
All wrapped up in moments
That keep us bonded and snug.

Just something to bring tears
To my eyes and have them
Mist as I burst and scream.

That's twenty seconds of
Good good loving...
Now do you know what I mean?
