One Last Kiss

One Last Kiss

written by: Annette Tarpley

 

One last kiss
Bestow upon my lips
It will last me
Through Eternity

Do not deny me
This one last request
For I shall never want
For another

One last kiss
To instill in my memory
Your silky soft lips
Upon mine

The luxury of
Your lips are priceless
More precious than gems
More coveted than gold

One last kiss…One last memory…One last breath…
