Wading, Waiting

The water whispered
words of comfort to this soul
For too long its been out in the cold

Pushing and pulling
the ocean has its way
gently I sway

Arms extended, basking in the sun
its warmth reminds me of only one
The day persists, tears begin to run

Drifting along an empty shore
the fences all look the same
waited all day, but you never came

Sand wisps off the dunes and spirals into the air
curling gracefully, reminiscent of your hair

The wind hums
The light flickers off the surface
as the sea and the sun share their first kiss–
Where were you for all this?

Time passed
The sun sank and eventually hid
in the ocean that held me like you once did
