Our Last Kiss



Our last kiss

Was it that long ago?

A smile, a hug, a caress

Once so abundant

Promise me

Never taken for granted

A hand

Delicate, steady, firm

Tell me, it’s still there

A laugh, a twinkle, applause

Thank you, it meant so much

A dream, a wish, a prayer

Persuade me, it’s all still true

A meal, a tale, a memory

Share with me, all so vivid

A Savior, so real

He knows you all too well

Through your prayers

These many years

He’s waiting

He’ll dry your tears

One last kiss

Was it that long ago?



Dedicated to my mother, Virginia Baylor Malik. 

She passed away on Sunday, October 13th, 2013 and this was read at her eulogy
