The Kiss of Life

When my spirit falters,
don't plead for me to stay.
We've known the best of life:
the stars at night, the warmth of day.

We never wished to part,
but life is fashioned so.
To share it here was all we asked
and all that we can know.

Our lives start with a cry,
but wisdom brings us laughter.
A hug, my dear, is all that's left
And silence ever after.
