'If we must part' by William Forde
"In the pain of separation I lose myself and all my thoughts turn back to you.
If we must part, then let it be for the briefest of moments and the best of reasons.
Let it be with dignified authority and not in angry silence, unkind thought or bitter haste.
Instead, let all our parting be but a mere prelude to your sweet return when I feel you brush my hands once more."
