Can I see you one more time
Before you go?
Will you give me one long last look
Before you go?

Do your fingers curl in half-conscious longing
For something that they miss?
Or is it merely a wave goodbye
In place of my farewell kiss?

If your lips cannot rise to meet mine
Your muscles fail, your heart too weak
Let mine descend to meet yours, my dear
My heart holds the strength and love you seek

Let my heart carry yours
On waves of gentle strength
What should I ever do without you
Across time’s empty length?

So hold my hand, be with me
One last sunrise see with me
I’ll tell you one last time
How much I love you

Before you go,
Before you go.
