Treasured Moments

I see... the sun rise... amidst the glow of thy presence
I see... your footsteps frolic... amongst the sandy shores... so serene
I remember... those twilight laughters...
... those sweet melodies that lingers...
... in the soothing fragrance... of the sea breeze

The touch... the scent... the warmth I so cherished... so deeply longed
... beyond the cold mountain mists
... beyond the grandeur of the city lights below

In the stairs of the cliff... our lips so sweetly touched
... in marvel of the mystic shores below
So many faraway nooks to rendezvous...
... yet time so little... yet so tender

My eyes slowly cry with tears unshed
... for it is my heart that bleeds... so profusely
In the day of the heart's afterglow... you'll soon be oceans away
... knowing not when to see your smile again
... knowing not when to feel your touch again

Perhaps... another moment to treasure...
... in dreams... in reality... in hope...
