On the Shore

Well, here we are. It's late, almost eleven.
Even if the day had not acquainted us
With paradise, and I sincerely think it has,
It's almost over. Should we go? The crescent
Moon has slipped out from the clouds
And paints the water silver. I no longer
Clearly see your face. That doesn't matter
Now. I feel you, to my body, in my mind,
And cannot bear the thought of getting up
To say goodnight. Don't you believe
A better thought would be to remain here?

I can feel for the speaker's dilemma: to see or to touch and to say or not to say goodbye. As to the last rhetoric question, I think the answer is 'yes.'
