The scent of warm hands

You've been missing for a decade now
I am thankful we shared two
The scent of warm hands
Around mine so small and cold
The leaves we raked when harvesting your gardens
The moon we guessed in stormy thundered nights
The silence in me when you hold me close
The smile in your eyes when I got into sight
One day you lost your memory
The other day your mind
Got confused and blind
And scared by its brutality
The next you lost your life
And all your warmth dissolved
In tears of my anxiety
Still carry them for you
Remembering we shared
Should we have been closer
Are we closer now
