One Loving Kiss
Searching the internet, looking for your name,
If I could just replay our last five minutes
I’d tell you I was scared but I did love you.
In-spite of all my faults, I know you loved me.
You’d fly across the ocean to visit me and
patiently wait to spend time together,
Our trans-Atlantic romance was exciting
but was it enough to make a life together.
You asked me to marry you and fly away
to Germany where you’d make me a home.
Afraid to hurt you, I’m sorry I never told you
I had unexpectedly met my true soul mate.
I drove you to the airport, with one loving kiss
You left thinking there may be a chance for us.
I never replied, sorry - the kiss was goodbye.
