The Whisper Shell


There was a moment when, together but alone
we stood close to the sea both far away in thought
The whisper shell the waves had brought
I held it to my ear as if it was a phone
and when you saw me doing that, I felt so caught
remembering the times we fought
when voices had a different tone

You started running on the beach
I followed you and we fell in the sand
like we had shipwrecked and found land
You had two more shells, one for each
It was the last time that I felt your hand
