The boats came in one by one, as twilight kissed the ocean blue
Like fireflies from a distant land, they filled up the misty hue.
The shoreline was a field of dreams, with smiling faces all around.
I steeled myself to the beautiful eve, and just waited for a distant sound.
A sound I knew I may not hear, because the music within me had died
Your soft farewell eons ago, still beat against my heart till it cried.
Yet amidst the song and cheer, I waited for the one I love.
With silent tears of hope and prayer, transfixed towards the ONE above.
The boats all found their home ashore, into loving embraces their owners went.
I tarried a while and then I knew, it was just another meaningless evening spent.
Gone was that music, as were you, and yet it was all so fresh in my mind.
Truer words weren’t spoken, when it’s said, time doesn’t always heal a word unkind.
