parting
It's only now a short time
'til I will have to let you go;
And in this place
of people rushing here and there
I will steal time
and just once more will hold you close
and close my eyes
and cherish one more time
you in my arms, your body's warmth,
and  feel you near
as time now whispers in our ears
and quietly reminds us it is time,
convince myself
I'm strong enough to turn
and then with eyes strong say goodbye
without a tear to give it all away.
So in this place
of people rushing here and there
I will steal time
and just once more will hold you close
and then accept
we can't turn back from parting our lives.
So  think of me
until you grow away.
Jon Bohrn (1998)
