LAST NIGHT





Last Night


foreheads pressed together

fingers intertwined

my breath on your cheek

your heartbeat in my palm


this parting foretold

the natural way of things

even so,

I am unprepared for this

Last Night




You more matter-of-fact than I

always

never fearing what is to be

releasing what was

gracefully


I am for fighting to keep you

keep us

keep it all the same

today and tomorrow and forever



impossible of course

I know that I know that I know that

You are kind not to remind me

my heart argues with fate


argues for time to stand still

argues for now to be always

argues for just one more

Last Night
