If I had known
As we stood on those steps
That would have been
Our last kiss,

I would have held on
With both hands,
Marking your face with my thumbs,
Letting the touch
Burn into memory.

I would have
Dragged my finger over your jacket
So I could remember
What you were wearing forever.

I would have let it last,
Just a little longer,
Enough to make sure you remember me too.
