The red sun sinks slow into the sea
And shipwrecks on the rocks below
The clouds bloodstained remain
And soften to a glow.
There is no moon, but the sea is there
The waves still come and go
Hypnotic sound of water bathes my soul
Bruised and battered now, aching to know
Where you are, my heart’s beloved –
Are you near, or far?
Do you see me – hear my cries?
As I listen to the sea, do you hold my hand?
The stars become shards of ice
Tearing at the fabric of my being
Where are you hiding? Where do you stand?
I hear your whisper in the wind
Playful wraith, fast as light - gentle as the dark
That encloaks the world grown weary of pain
Come, be with me – Hold me close again
Let me hide in the comfort of your heart
Remind me that nothing can keep apart
Two hearts made one – since first the world began
When we meet we shall greet each other by our spirit names
Half remembered, half forgotten like a dream
Then shall the circle be whole again
And pain forgotten as if it had never been
