tender hands

don't remind me
about the time we
only met at night...
we had to meet
down the street
to talk by dashboard light
forget the place 
you touched my face      
& stared into my eyes...
played our song
all night long
gave in to compromise

 
if I remember
your hands so tender
or your breath
against my flesh
my senses will fade
from the love we made
my senses will fade
my senses will fade

 
let's not recall
the time that fall
you carried me on your back...
rolled up our sleeves
played in the leaves
committed to the fact
don't let me say
how you had your way
& made my heart skip beats...
your body & mine
intertwined
& we surrendered to the heat
let's pretend
there's no rules to bend
let's deal with what's to be
don't hesitate
it's much too late
I refuse to believe....

 
that your breath
against my flesh
makes me remember
your hands so tender
my senses will fade
from the love we made
your hands so tender
I don't want to remember.
