you are the ocean and I am the moon

out here on the brightest of nights

I rise over you and you move under me

sway my heart with the tides

remember, my love, when we were young

and Mother Earth told us the tale

of the moon and the sea, forever apart

moving as one even still

we’ve had a thousand lives and a thousand tries

do you remember when my hair was white?

can you recall how many times we’ve died alone?

I am trapped in endless motion

you are held so far below

every night I return to seek

the depth, the rhythm, the strength

and I’ve found you again, your eyes of the deep

this life is one night in the course of time

give me your life and I shall give you mine

if your tides will hold me for one night longer

The End
