These Quiet Moments

hey my lover let me hold you
for a few more minutes
lay here together
allow the world to move on without us
hold me tight
kiss me tenderly
wipe away my tears
curled up beside you
my head on your chest
one arm draped across you
your own wrapped around me
lulled by the beat of your heart
the gentle intake of breath
let us forget where you end and I begin
right now in this moment
we are one
just as it was meant to be
please let me have a few more moments
don’t get up
don’t leave me again
for with you goes my heart and soul
without you I am less of a woman
let me lay here
a little while longer
