Fading Letters

-

I've wandered the shoreline of time,

contemplating dreams like waves.

Waiting for a moment

Waiting for you.

-

Away, so far away it seems.

The nostalgic breeze flutters by

with flower petals from last spring.

Can you still remember that day?

-

Scripted words on silk,

heartfelt wishes in blue ink.

Hand to hand,

in the vanishing sunset...

-

Gone, drowning wishes in memory.

The sand beneath my feet is cold,

soaked with tears from this fall,

Washed clean in the forlorn dark.

-

Feelings expressed in fading words,

a tiny fragment of soul (no regrets).

A simple confession,

left behind like broken seashells.
