One Last Time

Christopher Elwell

Sometime in the future

Exactly when I am not sure

I would like to come back to you

One last time.

Not in a dramatic way

I hope you understand

Nor to frighten or upset you.

I promise to choose something

Small and insignificant,

A single drop of rain perhaps.

I will settle on your cheek

But only for a moment - that is all

Before you mistake me for a tear

And brush me away for ever.
