Lost Ashore 

The waves that wash at your feet

Are the same that wet mine

Yet here we stand, a sea apart,

Chasms of thoughts and time;

The flesh that once tingled

As you cupped and caressed

Retains imprints of your touch

Brandings of love professed

The same breeze that brushes your face

Searches through my locks of hair

For secrets left by your breath

Sweet whispers of desire

I search within you for laughter

The wanton mirth of old

Your lips try, your eyes lie

As words fall dead and cold

The sun that warms your skin

Is the same that scalds mine

The same earth lies beneath our soles

The restless sands of time

Maybe some day we’ll set sail

Leave the shore of our memories

And reach each other among the waves

In the trembling turn of the seas.
