The Touch of Your Hand
 
I wait for your step in the twilight
And the touch of your hand at the door.
And the soul of me answers your greeting
That comes no more.
I know that you are gone beyond calling
And never can answer more
But oh! I long for the lilt of your laughter
And the touch of your hand at the door.

 
William A. Drake
