We stood together
Facing each other
Hands grasped tightly
The Summer sun
Glowed behind him
The day had been sticky
Full of hot breathed kisses
Which made saying goodbye
All the more difficult
With a lump of tears
In my throat
He said three words
Under protest
Our hands opened
Releasing their hold
But even as we walked away
Our hearts turned around
For one last look
Ending the day
Waiting til tomorrow.
