I Stand

Rating: 5.0

I stand grey, cold and alone.
Like a statue on Easter Island.
Watching endless waves roll by.
Waiting for your long return.

Now you have arrived by my side.
Realizing you should go away again.
I look into the stone faces around me.
Feeling strength, that I am not alone.

Once, salt air carried our love together.
Rain washed away all of our fears.
Midnight stars beckoned to be pointed at.
Sunrises came like a silent ghost.

But, true love will always last.
Timeless and not obscured.
You have come and you have gone.
Get up, get up. It is time I stand.

I stand fulfilled, solid and happy.
Like a statue on Easter Island.
Watching endless days roll by.
Waiting for another to come.
