Where The Water Meets The Sand.


every now and then

i wonder

how many of these words

do you read

and realise

they were meant for you?


time is a funny thing,

you see,

and one moment

we’re ebbing closer

and the next –

the tide takes you away.


and so i wait on the shore,

where the water meets the sand

and i pray

that one day

you are brought back to me

in one piece.


perhaps it’s wishful thinking

to wait for something

that isn’t promised

but the heart wants what it wants

so patiently

i watch you drift away.


i’ve thought of confessing my love

in a bottle

thrown into the sea,

but instead i write these poems

and i wait

for you to see.
