a bittersweet embrace

As the minutes pass Iím filled with apprehensive dread

Iím well aware the time is near to hear what has to be said

You slowly take my hand in yours and as you grip I start to shake

I look right through your sullen eyes and with that, my heart you take

Precious moments are all that we have as the night falls into day

We hold each other as tight as we can, hoping our end we can delay

You lie me down and pull me close and as you speak you stroke my hair

ďangel when you're down and low, look to your heart, youíll find me thereĒ

With those words I close my eyes and the tears begin to swell

You tell me Iím the perfect catch because from heaven is where I fell

This is to me what love should be, senses heightened to the edge

Although weíll part and walk alone my devotion to you I pledge

Letís make love now, I softly say and place the sadness we feel aside

For nowís the time we loose ourselves to the passion we each provide

Our bodies touch and our lips explore and Iím found beneath your gaze

I taste a truth I canít let leave because Iíve fallen for your ways

Itís easy to breathe when youíre around and to feel the love you share

Have I gone to a place of faith where doubts are considered rare

My thoughts break as I look out to the cruel and lonely skies

As dawn creeps and darkness fades I chase the reflection in your eyes

Harbour fears of the absence thatís near, I grab you and I embrace

My head drops and my arms clasp, our hearts beat a rapid pace

You kiss my neck and I feel the fall of your salty saddened tears

I make it known this evanescent night will stay with me for years

I stand and sway as I try to walk away, you say this final line :

ďangel with wings, youíre what happiness brings, forever youíll always be mineĒ

Goodbyes always hurt. I recently said my own which was very similar to this write. Wanting to hold on but knowing that letting go is the next step, kills ones heart.
Nice write!
