I met you in the coffee shop at 3:00am
it would be a long time 
before we would see each other again

I was late, yet you waited
I rushed to be at your side
to look into your face
into your open, kind eyes

I was leaving that day
traveling further than I knew
even then
leaving behind this one moment
the only moment we ever had alone

The only moment we ever had

And as we walked out to our cars
after light conversation and dark coffee
we stood silently in the parking lot

I could no longer hold back
and I kissed you

Our one and only kiss

I said, "I've always wanted to do that"
You said, "Me too"

And after a pause
we said goodbye
