Before They Kiss

It's foolish when anger

Pulls two lovers apart

Both will soon realize

They'll have broken hearts.

Even surrounded by their friends

They'll both feel alone

One needs to give in

And pick up the telephone.

If their differences are settled

Make up kisses will be great

Cuddling in each other's arms

No thoughts will be on past mistakes.

Possibly some far away future day

After being married a long while

They're remember their long ago dispute

I bet it'll make both of them smile.

Before they kiss.
