yet again we will part

yet again
we will part.
yet again.

so,
let me hold your hand in both of mine
and feel its strength and the warmth,
for the last time
for a long time.

let me hold your face against mine
and feel your tear on my cheek,
for the last time
for a long time.

when we have made love tonight
lay my head on your chest and let me breathe you in,
for the last time
for a long time.

as we prepare to sleep, hold me against you from head to toe,
that i may take your body with me,
for the last time
for a long time.

when i am leaving whisper in my ear 'good bye and all the best'
and stand there waving until i see your smile tremble,
for the last time
for a long time.

yet again
we part.
yet again.
