Kiss

Kiss

I.

I wondered sweetly
on a lazy sunny afternoon
as you lay
in my bed with a smile
and eyes closed for a while
I could kiss you and feel
the touch of your lips on mine
but dreaded the thought
of waking you up to my dear
so I slowly caress your face
and feel the warmth of your skin
unto the palm of my hand

 

Chorus:

Did I ever get the chanceย  to tell you, how lovely you look that day
and would it be too late to say
that I loved you then
and love you now?

II.

I wondered if I ever get to hold you
in my arms so close
and listen to your heartbeats
in the same rhythm as mine
I watched you breath slowly
as your body movesย 
in a manner so gentle and smooth
and many times I was tempted
to steal a kiss from you that day
but baby, I didn’t ‘cos I want you
to see me smile as I kiss you
with my arms wrap around you
so tight, then we could slow dance
in our make-believe song

 

Chorus:

Did I ever get the chanceย  to tell you, how lovely you look that day
and would it be too late to say
that I loved you then
and love you now?

Bridge:

let’s kiss and stay and don’t you ever go away

A stunning shot of the sunset by my equally stunning ๐Ÿ˜Šdaughter, Allana.

They say the best stories of love happens over a sunset, along the highway or in just in the comfort of your own home. And I read somewhere that someday you will find someone who will watch every sunrise with you until the sunset of your life.

To all my readers and followers who missed my random lyric writing posts, here’s one for you.

I hope you hum along with the melody with me and smile as we enjoy and navigate into the world of the characters in the song๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

Feel the love, believe in love โคโคโค

Amidst all the health scare we are currently facing, one song, one smile, one kiss, or maybe one great love story could be a better way to start our day,ย  ’till we make it through the sunset.

  1. I love your song. You should put this to a melody. I love the power lines caught in the sunset. Having someone to cherish is an even greater gift to the soul than being loved in return. I am going to have a read again and sigh. โค๏ธ
