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


never fearing what is to be

releasing what was


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
