Tremble Re-write

She kissed me under the lamp post
A kiss so soft that my lips trembled
I felt her being entering my heart
And my soul kneeling before her
Wanting her kiss to last forever.
Suddenly I was afraid.
I longed for her to be my destiny
But relationships would have to be sacrificed
And Love cannot be sullied with such things,
And then, she was gone.
We both knew it could never be.
She was the Earth and I was the Moon
Orbiting on the outskirts of her Life,
I was always just a tear away.
The years have past
And still she lies deep within my being.
If there is a God, pray grant this Sinner one last request.
When I take my last breath,
Let my Soul find her again,
In a place where time and space have no meaning
Where love is not afraid and  where heaven can see 
That beautiful  girl I kissed under the lamp post
Still trembling my memory.
