Fleeting as an ocean wave;
Once, surge waters knocked us both for six. 'I know
And it is as if only-yesterday for me.
I held your hand in mine, a lifetime ago.
Still, it holds at its highest peak.'
It doesn't reach the shoreline or turn tail & run,
Someplace inside of me, quite, unique.
I've frozen time & space; honestly, it doesn't succumb,
Never, do I forget how clear-
Our waters coursed through our veins.
Never, do I forget the oceans I'd bleed?
For you, nothing ever in me wax-or-wanes.
It's as if some drop of crystal-water still holds-true.
As if love is a part & parcel of every soul
For even if it turns cloudy or murky,
I know I too want to evaporate & sprawl
& perspire once more flawless over you
Like dawns first-ever drifts of morning dew.
