I say goodbye now with bittersweet tears
The ten days have gone so swiftly like sands
Blown away by your golden smile. You spear
My chest with longing. Come and hold my hands
One last time. Before I board the airplane
I draw a kiss, long & deep. How my pulse
Quickens & flames with your soft touch. Insane
I am to believe 'tis love, not mad impulse
Shadows inside me, wounds long ago, flee
Doubts crippling my words, fade & disappear
With you, mornings become glorious to see
Dappled blue-pink, I dream of you so near
So close I hear you whisper a sacred
Vow, Soon ! Our lives, twining, undivided !
