The Sea - Poem by Joy Powell

I have been too long from you...
I no longer taste you on my lips...
nor feel the coolness of your touch....
or the smell of you on my skin....
The heat of the sun remains the same
though without you I feel forever lost...
your music soothed my ears... your
calmness eased my worries...
your storms excited me!
you lifted me to dance within your wake
swirl within your strength..
go deep within your space of beauty and wonder
I cannot forget you..
I play in you in my dreams...
walk the shore that embraces you
wishing at this moment....
I was the sand beneath you
so that you could caress my soul
with you movement...
