The parting gift you gave of your sweet lips
after our walk by flowers in full bloom
Spring's magic touched us both and then a kiss
on mouth then neck you gave this afternoon
I'm now unsure of its meaning or intent.
Was it designed to wrap in mystery
endearments to come or simply invent
fantastic thoughts born of base vanity?
Worse, was it nothing but a sweet goodbye
or a pass you knew I could not ignore?
Such is my state to wonder if and why
an innocent parting seems so much more
till a song comes to mind to tell me this
till otherwise a kiss is just a kiss.
