   There Was A Time......

 

 

 Like grains of sand......
            my thoughts of you
wash........across my mind,
                        fading........in-and out
with the endless tide.

Every now and then....
            a poignant memory bobs
to the surface................like a piece
            of driftwood........
on its' journey, not knowing where
            it is going..........not caring
just...............floating with the tide.

There was a time, when
            we were lovers
and the thought.......never
            entered our minds....that
we could part.

We walked around these beaches
            .......laughing, playing
you spashed water into my eyes..
            and then ran......laughing.
We had such fun then.

The clouds remind me .....of you.
            How you loved the clouds,
we would lay together........for hours
               our imaginations filling the time
with magical dragons, eagles, and
                        .......elephants dancing.

Love seemed simple then,
            it was so easy......for me to love you,
We were so open........and
            so in love.

And then, the storms came.......
            and our love....was torn, shattered
each blow spinning us around.......until
                        we reeled  with the violence
and collapsed........like a weather balloon
                                    spiraling towards the earth.

Our love was caught........in the undertow,
            and pulled us down......the sweetness gone
                        a gaping hole where my heart was.

Now.........I wander alone......breathing the cool,
            moist air......watching seagulls dipping..
                        soaring..wiggling my toes in the warm sand,
wishing.............wondering what life could have been like

...............if there had been no storm.....
