Lost sonnets

I do not know
Where now it lies
Forgotten
For so long
Amongst decaying dust
Of memories
Perhaps some lonely stranger
Has loved it
As once we did
And verses
Which once you read aloud
Tingle on their lips
In memory of my skin
Which prickled
At your gentle touch
Under the trees of summer.

A couple of days ago I came across a book online which I should have on my bookshelves but, for some reason, I do not. It was given to me decades ago by somone who is now a dear friend but at one time was, or perhaps could have been, were it not for my own youthful stupidity, so much more.
