Lip,oh lips o' mine
They long to taste the sweet
Honey ofyours
Oh to show, to prove you still care,
May our lipsentangle
To be the last time mine touch yours
For thehoney has turned bitter
And I no longer long totouch
Yours for I no longer care
To seeyou.
Goody-bye say my fair lips
For yours will not bealone
Even though mine will not
Be the lips to touchyours.
They have moved on to
Softer, kinder lips
Thatfill my mouth
With sweet love and kindness.
Somethingyour lips
Could not give
Mine

(Ildi died 10/15/98, age 16)
