Summer Near the Sea


The way you were then, the way you are
I see you both times now
The silent evenings near the sea
where my skin embraces
the moist salty air
I have been waiting for you all my life
while you where actually here
so near
A husband and a wife
and now, as you will always be
the one whose trusted voice,
your timbre, sounds so good to me
I know that the way you move away my hair,
the breeze will just make it a chaotic mess again
but this gesture and your touch
is what I have been waiting for
Not too long
Not too much
Not in vain
We still are one
together
like the way we were
way back then

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
