That’s All It Takes

February 7, 2008
By Kahealani Acoba-Baldado, Kailua Kona, HI

A gentle touch
A gentle stroke
Your eyes slowly close
You begin to dream.
Silk and softness
With every slow touch.
Your eyes remain closed,
Mind in a trance.
A single touch
A single stroke
That’s all it took
To ease away the stress
To remove every pain.
A single gentle touch
Used to sign for protection
A single gentle stroke
My show of affection.
A gentle touch
A gentle stroke
That’s all it took,
That’s all I need.

No more no less
Not softer or with more aggression
But just one
One gentle touch
One gentle stroke
That’s all it took to ease away the pain
The pain that formed within the emotions
Within the heart itself
A gentle touch
A gentle stroke
That’s all it took
That’s all I need.
