Touched

Webster’s defines touch in the following ways:

: to put your hand, fingers, etc., on someone or something
: to be in contact with (something)
: to change or move (something)

The touch of a hand on baby’s soft skin,
On the wisps of silky hair,
Taking small fingers into mine
The miracle hits me right there.

The feel on my skin of a crisp, cool morning
Reminds me of school bus days,
And the cold, salt air of the Northwest beach
Takes me out of the workday haze.

But to touch someone’s heart is the best type of touch;
It’a feeling that lingers still.
Humanity served, connections preserved
Of kindness, love, and good will.

In response to https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/the-power-of-touch/: Textures are everywhere: The rough edges of a stone wall. The smooth innocence of a baby’s cheek. The sense of touch brings back memories for us. What texture is particularly evocative to you?
