“SIGNIFICANT TOUCH, NOW, FOREVER!” !”}
The importance of TOUCH – is well documented,
Existence itself – must-be – supplemented,
By stroking (and) caressing! Please! DO-hold-your-baby,
And, when we are older, it ISN’T a maybe:
YOU NEED TO HAVE OTHERS – TO TOUCH YOUR SWEET BODY;
The absence of SUCH – is clearly quite naughty!
Yet-there’s-a-tendency, I think – in SOME social views,
To-obscure touch’s-importance! And-give-the-body “THE BLUES!”
Science HAS established – we (all) need lots of touch,
So bodies can thrive – and-be-happy-very-much!
Our bodies need: good-food, sun-warmth, rest – and-wind,
Movement and cleaning – Yet! Please-don’t-offend,
For touch must be lovely – expected – (and)-inspired;
Bodies want: safety – and-LOVE! They’re HARD-WIRED!
So – find you some friends – who are touchy and feely,
And “grapple-them-to-thy-soul(s),*” and assure them that REALLY,
You’re happy to see them – you love them – and like,
Their presence and bodies! Plus-endorphins-doth-spike!
Yes!-Chemicals-emerge – when there’s touch and embrace,
And it makes things MUCH nicer – in-this unusual place,
Where there’s punching – and poking – and needles – and probes,
And this is quite fright’ning, for we-can-become-“phobes!”**
For some [folks] touch unkindly – in various ways,
But, hopefully, your-touches – will-be-good all your days!
And THIS – brings us NOW – to-a-most-important-thing:
YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER! who – much joy can bring!
For your partner is-critical, spending quality time,
Soothing! with-loving-touch and – sometimes-words that-do-rhyme!
SIGNIFICANT TOUCH, see-and-taste, smell-and-hear,
Is all SO IMPORTANT!
“I LOVE YOU, My Dear, for somehow our bodies have made us be one; being with YOU is a whole lot of fun, when our days can be spent – with cherish and passion!”
SIGNIFICANT TOUCH is always in fashion!
“SO, KISS ME AND HOLD ME – I’LL ASK YOU TODAY, and HOPE FOR YOUR TOUCH – “FOREVER!” I say 💙
- from Wm. Shakespeare’s “Hamlet I, iii!”
** – Having a fear of something – like touching! 🙁
