My Other Love - Poem by James Casey

My Other Love

She beckons me to join her as she drifts...... the promised land
Often tells me that she loves me as she takes me by the hand
Slowly the footprints disappear down the shifting sand
While she and I reflect upon the life that we had planned.

I've often heard her song, as it drifts upon the wind
From the east most shore it's sound vibrates....to occur again
I am taken back in time to when she would ascend
To my melancholy state of mind, and be my only friend.

Someday I will find my way back to some sandy shore
Where I'll embrace the sunrise with my love, evermore
Cheek to cheek we'll watch her tides, a sweet accord
She summons, that sea, it's she I've been searching for.

Then my one true love will leave me there beyond the shifting sand
Memories will be dark shadows of when we walked hand in hand
For it is the pact we agreed......now it seems......not so long ago
She stands before my other love, sends me to her as it was foretold
