I Die A Little Bit Every Time - Poem by Ray Hansell

Sitting around relaxing
An evening filled with love
Forgetting the world outside
As the stars shine above

Laying together side and side
Knowing that love is alive
Touching and rubbing your skin
As my love for you will never hide

The sweet smell of you
Fills the entire room
Any time you leave
Is always too soon

The softness of your body
Draws me to you like a magnet
You give me joy and loving
I know I won’t forget

I want each night to be
The way it was the first night
Laying close beside you
Until the morning light

We watched the candle flicker
As it burned toward the end
Almost like a message
That it was trying to send

It was letting us both know
That the night was almost through
That soon I would be saying
A sad goodnight to you

But we both held on a little longer
Not wanting to let go
Knowing that in our hearts
Our sadness was going to show

I know that neither one of us
Wants to say goodbye
It seems that when I do
Another piece of me slowly dies
