June Mermaid

------------------------------

In the cold silence

Gently shivering light.

Fading ripples spread

Slowly out of sight.

-

One girl

Alone in the dark

Eyes a haze of blue

Echoes of the past

Within the mists

No other sound is heard.

Lingering emotions of distant sorrow

Eyes of sadness and the tears that follow.

-

Don't you remember?

That girl in the mists.

Was it all a dream

You somehow missed?

That night was long

Alone she still sits

Waiting, still waiting

For dawn to break.

-

Petty love

So bittersweet

That one girl

You chanced to meet

What was the cause?

Why did you leave?

The lost hope

You failed to see.

-

Gone to a place far away

Forever waiting for you

To come back someday.
