Sooner or Later

By Elva White

Sooner or later you'll forget
All you're saying tonight - and yet
‘Tis sweet for the stars to kiss the sea
But not so sweet as your kissing me

It doesn't mean anything, I know
But I like to hear your line, and so
The moonlit night has a thousand charms
As I lie content in your strong arms
Kiss my neck, my arms, and then
Kiss my trembling lips again

Hold me, fold me, just tonight
‘Til the stars in the sky turn white
Sooner or later you'll forget
All you're saying tonight, and yet
Never mind the sweet By and By
For sooner or later,
So will I.
