Love is a Touch

I love you!


Heard around the world, those three words mean so much

It’s our fundamental need for this emotional crutch

That reflects the power of the human touch


Enveloped in the womb, it’s our first sensation

Before the sound of Mom’s heart vibrations

God’s special touch anoints us as His creation


Touch, we need it from friends, family and lovers

Something we have to give and receive from others

A bond that makes all humans brothers


So anytime, you touch someone in kind

As the power of your love begins to unwind

Remember these three words in your mind


I love you!
