my soul meets your soul every night beneath the secret sea
though my mind cannot paint such bliss upon my memory,
my heart however recalls love as rosy dawn sends her dove
before even a wave will crash I thrice resound your name
just as you leave to give white faded memory to the same
as you have long since strayed too far away from our flesh
I remain behind regardless to watch the rain collapse to earth,
freezing in the snow, springtime buzzing, summer sweltering,
set in your mortal burdens I alone watch your revolutions turn.
for I promised that I’d reflect your dark treacherous pathways
with your own fires longing to bloom in our ocean’s starry night
water to your flame, undulating tide to heal your burning pain.
