but we mustn't kiss

i can tell you that i love you
as long as you know how i feel
i can hold you if you need me to
i can explore the depths of your mind

but we mustn't kiss 

i can share a bed or meal with you
we can drink from the same glass
i can allow you to think things through
i can support you for eternity 

but we mustn't kiss 

i can spend my nights pressed to you
provide we're both clothed
i can stroke your hair til you feel new
i can touch you when you cry

but we mustn't kiss 

i can say you're a blessed friend 
and come to every show 
i can call you, with time to lend
i can absorb every word you say

but we mustn't kiss

you can share these feelings 
as long as romance it is not 
i could need you desperately
as long as you've not forgot

we mustn't kiss

The End
