To the Last

To the last drop of wine
I drink to you
Remembering our days
before solitude descended
and in my grief befriended
me so gentle in its sway

To the last melody
I sing to you
How I danced in your arms
before darkness called the tune
and stole happiness to soon
All cherished hope betrayed

To the last lingering kiss
I gave to you
as you lay in deathly shade
Before time could steal yourย breath
and bring to you the kiss of death
and take you on its way

To the last drop of wine
I drink to you
