Lipstick

I can still taste your lipstick
From that last kiss
I can still smell your perfumed hair
I can still hear your gentle breathing
I can feel your warm embrace

I recall the look of sadness
I remarked on the tears in your eyes
Your last words ring in my ears
Will they haunt me through the years?
Through the lonely years

I never thought it would end that way
A final touch not wanting to release
I had many plans to work out with you
I heard that you did too
But the taste of that last kiss
Will haunt me through the years

Desperate measures called for
To call you ask you back
Is that what we both want?
Is that what we both need?
But the taste of that last kiss
Will haunt me through the years

I recall the many happy smiles
The trips away the returning days
Your words of love and kindness
Will they haunt me through the years?
Through the lonely years
