Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Melancholy Blue
 
 Image
footprints...
in sands of misery
mood dangling
from dark clouds
can you hear
my lonely cries
within...
ocean sounds?

you took along
a piece of me
the day...
you slipped away
years have passed
with aching pain
yet,
feels like yesterday

I sit 'n watch
the fading sun
awaiting...
stars to shine
knowing...
in my heart
of hearts
eyes Topaz blue...
still shine

ocean songs...
enwrap my soul
bring back yesteryears
waves of sadness...
cling to shore
mix...
with Crystal tears

desperately...
I hug the night
let darkness cradle me
while echoes
of a seagull
carry...
'cross the sea

tiny bubbles...
lap my feet
waltz 'long Emerald shore
shells gather
with their secrets
reminding...
me once more

to build...
just one more castle
our footprints...
in the sand
days of yore
resurface...
siblings...hand in hand

my broken heart
keeps searching
craves peace...
'n harmony
still haunted
by your passing
what ifs...
that couldn't be

oceans blue...
horizons
miles away from home
a lifelong dream
your passion
to rest...
in sea of foam

do you swim
with manatees?
explore...
the ocean floor?
join in songs...
of dolphins?
hop waves to meet...
the shore?

small ripples in the water
as roses...
float away
a balmy breeze
embraces...
keeping thoughts at bay

chin begins to quiver
emotions...
set adrift
there into the stillness
I blow a loving kiss

wonder...
can you hear me?
silent tears I cry?
they're right there
in my whispers
within...
the ocean tide
