One Dawn ...

Sometime during the night the duvet has slipped down and now the early-morning light shining through the blinds casts bars of dark and light across your naked body.

I said I'd wake you before I left and I reach out to touch your shoulder. No, not yet; in sleep you look so peaceful, so fragile and vulnerable. I cannot disturb you yet.

I take a moment to gaze down upon you. That mass of long, brown hair in which my fingers were so recently entwined lies splayed out upon your pillow like a halo, inviting my touch one more time. My eyes move slowly, greedily down your body and I cannot help but recall how it felt for my fingers, my lips, my tongue to follow that same route a few brief hours ago. I remember your scent, your taste, the velvet softness of your skin. I remember your kisses, one moment passionate, driven, hungry, the next gentle and tender. I remember - oh! how I remember! - the pleasures given and received as we shared much-missed joys late into the night, so much later than either of us had planned.

And I remember drifting towards sleep with you already asleep in my arms, your head on my chest, your soft breaths falling like the gentlest of breezes on my skin.

And now I must wake you to say my goodbyes. I may never meet you again. If our paths never cross after this day, I shall always remember with gladness this precious moment and the hours we enjoyed together before it.

But now I must wake you, must dress and leave. Just time for one last kiss. Or maybe ...
