Touch Has a Memory

The Rose

Keats says, “Touch has a memory.”
So as the light grows thinner and everything around me but you more obscure,
I find myself recounting all the common moments where you have been mine,
All the everyday acts that make up a lifetime of love.
If it were up to me, I would live them all over again simply to raise my tally
Until my life was nothing but an endless memory of you,
that I might take with me into the dark.
