Lost - Poem by Mary OBrien

I lost you once before
You slipped through my hands
As the waves pulled me under

Salt water is stinging in my eyes
The rocks have left bruises and scars
The tide has been unkind

I swam so far to find you
Left alone on the sand
Bewildered and afraid you remember

Let us stay here on the shore
I won't lose you again
Hold me tightly, don't let go

The waves will crash around us
The deep sea of the lost
We will not swim, we'll walk
