when everything else fails


the wonder in your eyes that fine day
imprinting our feet a warm long trail
on a beach one sunset one wonderful may
holding tight and lost from a blowing misty gale

the mischief in your eyes when you softly whispered
those sweet words they still vibrates the smallest bones in me
softly throbs a place in me where a cherub’s arrow entered
we let waves poke our toes a game we played with the sea

. . .

today i walk this beach alone and cloaked for the lack of you
but every feeling of your warmth lay within me enshrined
this beach feels ever the same but lingers the lack of you
memories of our time together still runs fresh in my mind

oh see i cannot find our footprint trial by the sea
so magical in my memories they seemed to be
and this sea ever playful has run silent with shame
i know it did rub off our footprints it is to blame

    In between time and thought, where yesteryear
    sings the melody of love there is an echo that lives
    on, a memory that triggers harmony, and a true
    feeling of warmth…

    A very nice poem my friend 🙂

    Ah, loss. I feel this. It’s wonderful when you have a partner, are walking by the sea.

    Very well expressed poem… footprints by the ocean always erode, get replaced.

    Happy New Year 🙂

    “Alone and cloaked” – I liked that imagery.

    This is a lovely poem, & I can feel it. I love foot prints in the sand at a beach – it evokes a lot of feeling about “how long we’re here for” and “who we’re walking with” (at the time). Excellent close.
