You looked at me as if it was the last time

Your eyes welled up and so did mine

I held both your hands, squeezing them tight

So much said, so much unsaid

A moment eternalized in my mind

By its intensity, its vulnerability

If we meet again, love

On my death bed or yours

Or somewhere in between

Let’s not apologise

I know you’re sorry

You know I am too

We didn’t know what we were feeling

We thought they were truths then

We don’t see them anymore

Hold my hand instead and lay next to me

Tell me a real goodbye this time

A ‘See you on the other side.’
