With his arms around her she said:
"Let's just stop everything and freeze right here.
The rest of the world can walk around us,
Witness the embrace they'll never feel.

When it's cold, please pull me closer,
When it rains we'll melt together.
Just please don't let me go,
Stop everything and freeze right here."

He stepped away, his hand still holding hers,
"I'm sorry, but I can't live in a moment,
Do you think that my life could take its place?
I know its far too short, but please stay with me.

Let my days begin and end perfectly with you,
Let me share your happy moments and wipe away your tears.
I hope that will be enough, please stay with me,
And while I may let go, I'll never really leave."

She smiled at him and he kissed her,
Their fingers laced together, they walked away.
Sometimes she still asks him to freeze the moment,
And he still implores her to stay with him.

Love is too weak of a word for such care and affections.
