Water and the Sand

Water and the sand
A wet and dry land
Waves rushing for
Abreak on the shore

Fingers entwined
Footsteps left behind
Sunset's fading glow
She wants him to know

Wet touches dry
Like tear on cheek, she cries
And he holds her hand
The dry in wet land

Foam hits the feet
Wash away the heat
Heart's feeling cold
The unspoken not told

She wades in the deep
Her heart she wants to keep
He stays on the sand
Safe on his dry land

Waves tear in between
Like a broken seam
She continues to wallow
And he, unsure to follow

Orange, red sky
Calm before a night's goodbye
Shadows turning black
One more chance to turn backā€¦

Water and the sand
A wet and dry land
She spins and goes to say
"I almost went the wrong way."

Water and the sand
A wet and dry land
He isn't there to wait
And she has come far too late

Water and the sand
A wet and dry land
He left her one thing in the dark
Where sand met water
Were their names in a heart.
