Of Ellipses and Moments...

There are no ellipses between moments
One melds into the next
Thus I want to endeavor
To love you in moment-bests

One moment with you darling
Simply leaves me longing for
Its full measure without parting
For at least one moment more

Farewell of fingers tracing
Is love’s inevitable
But heart-to-heart embracing
Is love’s subliminal

There are no ellipses between moments
They pulse in farewell’s kiss
But moment-hope anticipation
Is love’s tender-sweetest bliss
