A Wish to Prolong Butterfly Kisses

I dove into your brown eyes
If only for the last time
And kissed your sweet lips
As if they were as always mine

I suffer the burning eyes
Of tears I’ll not release
As recompense for those
I created all those years ago

I wander searching for Acontius
He’s no coin for me in Delos
A penny from my pocket
Sinks in Hegbachsee

I wish upon your brown eyes
That there never is a last time
That there never was a last time
That the story doesn’t end here
