The Last Words That Fall From Knowing Eyes

I can hear you whispering
in the night silence of my room
my heart surrenders to you...
like the sun to the moon.

I can barely stand this tormented aching,
endlessly my hands reach out for you
yet when the morning comes...
there is nothing I can do.

Somewhere in time I know
despite the tears that swell in my eyes
you, are the reason to my why...
and your kiss, wasn't a goodbye.

In your final embrace,
I looked into your beautiful eyes so free
Love me now and forever....
were the last words they silently said to me.
