Louis Cecile


Ocean Current of Devotion

I land face down in the sand
Stranded on this island
My first thought is only of you

My journey afar
Embraced a lifetime connection
Though I returned home alone

Sentiments float in a message in a bottle
One day you will touch
When opened you will feel touched

My first glimpse of you realised light
I understood what it meant to feel whole
Connected like a coral reef
A sweet valentine brings peace

Washed ashore
I reminisce
They say my continued affection is delusional

I searched for other fish in this sea
Though fate brought others
They never last as it always returns you to me

The tears of lovers make the ocean
Leaving me transfixed on the seashore
I open my mouth to take in your precious breath

I kiss you on your forehead to let you know my devotion
I kiss you on your lips for love is the emotion
I kiss you on your belly to welcome our child
Closing and reopening my eyes
Hoping this not to be a dream

The name Valentina makes my heart grow fonder
It gives me strength
Though it appears we are separated by the ocean
If I am truly honest
There is something I need to tell you
You make my world true
I am an ocean current of devotion
Forever bringing my love to you

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
