A word; a thought; a gesture; a glance,
You may not get a second chance-
To say: My love; my life; my all,
Do it now before you fall.
If tomorrow never is,
The last time you gave her a kiss-
Would be a ghost.
A memory you found & lost
Look at her tranquil face,
With your finger, follow & trace-
The contour of her face & brow.
Is that scar from then or now?
Feel her breath on your skin,
Take her scent deep within,
Fill your head with her intoxicating smell.
Pray that you’ll live & tell-
Of the beauty you found, young & fresh,
& how you dreamt of sinful flesh.
What you had but could not own,
A virgin you longed for, but left forlorn.
Take the chance, you won’t regret,
On that, my life I’ll bet,
For how high is the cost
Of a love you found & then lost?
