The Last Time
The day will burst upon my soul
as if a thousand suns
and leave behind a trail of tears
to blind me for a while.
To gain and keep a healing peace
I must remember all
the perfect moments deep and pure,
the smiles so often shared.
Yet all too soon the day shall come,
the last time we shall gaze
into each other’s eyes and speak
without a word or sound.
A final kiss, a last embrace
and all that will remain
are dreams that paint what might have been
to cherish for all time.
