One last kiss for you

I was but a child again
Running free safe from harm
Plucking blades of green grass
Like a snail coming out of shell
Singing "Ring of roses"
Last images before adult hell

Wading through water deep
Gasping with such cold feet
Future...a nowhere land
So far from the final pit
Rattling of times clock
Weighing up loss or credit

So much changed when love arrived
Your voice, your touch, your heart
How complete it was then
You and I were a prefect fit
But time far too soon
Your sweet care had to forfeit

So at last the final pill
Drifting in limbo land
Looking back feeling sad
How love ruled from the very start
One last kiss for you
Memories folded in my heart
