We Are Two

A whisper on my neck,
a sweet, gentle caress--
a kiss by my ear
lets me know you're near.

Eyes met across a room,
our love can now resume--
perhaps we met long ago,
before the heavens had a home

or maybe we were once one
seeing our loneliness done,
we split into two,
so that it was me and you.

Some say it won't last
judging us from our past
but I know my heart is with you
and that you're thinking of me too.

So let me give you this,
a memory's sweet kiss
to distract you from the world
that we escape from when we're alone. 

The End
