I kiss your lips
as we whisper
our good-byes
We embrace
one last time
and then you
must be on
your way
but we can't
seem to let go
we hold each other
in this moment
but gradually
and reluctantly
our grasp
on each other
loosens
and we gaze into
each other's eyes
and our love
shines through
we kiss again
and whisper
our good-byes
and embrace
again
We know
eventually
this perfect night
will come
to an end
but for now
We continue
this pattern
of kisses
good-byes
and embraces
foolishly
hoping that
we can do this
until the end
of time
