He reached out cupping her cheek with his hand and pulled her head into his chest. “It is time for goodbye, love,” he whispered in her hair.
She drew back and placed her arms around his neck pulling his head down. Her lips found his sending a tingling sensation through her body that she had never felt before. All of her emotional walls and barriers collapsed. She finally knew that she loved him so deeply it hurt and she wanted him to know it.He sensed the change and pulled her closer kissing her fiercely. She responded in kind. She felt the tension from months of endless waiting and longing dissolve. She could feel his tears mixing with her own and she longed to remain in his embrace. Finally he broke away leaving her breathless.
