Unravelling and weaving, sometimes simultaneously

Ten Kisses

Before you leave

stand still and let me kiss you…

because life is short

and kisses are important.


Kiss one is to say I love you.

Kiss two is for that too.


Kiss three is to say be careful

because I worry about you.


Kiss four is just for me

to remember all day,

and Kiss five is to remind you

you’re cherished

more than I can say.


Kiss six is extra special

it is a prayer, you see

to hold you safe the whole day that

you are away from me.


Kiss seven is for comfort

Kiss eight because time flies

Kiss nine is cause you’re beautiful

and a wonder in my eyes.


Kiss ten is by far most important

it’s the one I look forward to

a reminder we’re always together

wherever, whatever we do.
