That Was Me - Poem by Shelly Price

Do you remember feeling, not long ago, the fingers
of lady sun gently reach down and caress your face?
That was merely my smile spreading slowly like jam
across my face after waking from a dream about you.

Do you remember also the feeling of the ocean breeze
as it delicately blew full colored sails through your hair?
That was merely a whispered sigh escaping my lungs
trying to swallow the memory of one of our moments.

Do you remember the many sounds of a roaring surf
rolling it's blue tides that carried curling waves to sea?
That was merley the hushed sound of my desolate voice
cracking as I whispered aloud your name to myself.

Do you remember the taste of the ocean's salty spray
as it misted you while strolling in white-capped waves?
That was merely my tear drops falling overflowing eyes
remembering there is a sea of distance that seperates us.
