#SaturdayWordplay 3: Mizpah



Stealing kisses till the last minute, 
we whispered goodbye.
Your hand delicately caressed my skin, 
leaving a lingering promise, 
Our sun will never set.

A silent tear rolled down my cheek,
as I battled misty feelings.
I hadn't known up until then.
I had a love for you, so deep.

I hugged you tighter, 
let our breaths entwine.
Then slowly let you go.
  Knowing, we have,
 Mizpah.
