One Last Time

One Last Time

A Poem by Calissa Knox

Let me see your face,
if it's only one last time
Let me hear your voice,
if it's only one last time.

Let me look into your eyes,
if it's only one last time
Let me wipe the tears they cry,
if it's only one last time.


Let me feel your kiss,
if it's only one last time
Taste the sweetness of your lips,
until our broken hearts collide.

Let me feel your hand in mine,
relive our sunset hug 'goodbye'...

Even if it's only one last time . . .

I can absolutely feel the longing in this piece, in every single word. It's so emotional and I can really relate. Your writing is always so simple but that's what makes it so heartfelt at the same time. It's just beautiful and masterful. I'm your fan!

For me the poignancy was lessened by the over-use of "if it's only one last time". Repetition does have a place in our emotional firmament and yet if the work is too small to comfortably contain it - well, that is the way this piece feels to me. You have my attention. Your words HAVE impact and insight... the emotion is right THERE... use a finer "touch" and guide your listener to be beside you.

Thanks, Chris! I appreciate your input.
If only we could predict when the last time we get to be with a loved one we could put all our heart into that moment.

Thanks so much, Patricia!
We wish for closure after having fallen in love with someone, later to find out the relationship could not work out and wasn't meant to be. Even after heartbreak, we long for that beautiful goodbye, a final memory that is of good, because love was once there, perhaps still is, despite of all. You describe it so delicately, Feather, with an innocence and charm. x

I think this is a great poem. I always have wanted to make one that has a repeated expression that makes the poem really great so this inspires me to write one :)
