Get Rid Of The Advertisements

One breath away (Challenge)
 
Waves move in
to lap my feet
'n kiss
away the pain
yet silent tears
surrender
trickle down
my chin

Seagull's gather
overhead
cry and mourn
your death
wind chants
a ghoulish lullaby
'n steals
away my breath

Gone are dreams
'n promises
now washed
out with the tide
drowning
in the seaweed
trying to survive

Floating top the water
red clusters
of a rose
tossed with love,
remem'brance
childhood days
of old

Reaching
for tomorrow
yet stuck
in yesterday
trying to cope,
find answers
to get me through
today

Although the sun
is warming
lips quiver
with a chill
a loneliness
surrounds me
deep sadness
standing still

Seashells
'n sand-dollars
play catch us
if you can
while foam
and tiny bubbles
waltz along the sand

A gentle
calm embraces
'n wraps
around my soul
mem'ries
of a past tense
skip along the shore

The scent of you
still lingers
plays tag
with tropic breeze
'tho washed away
are footprints
your whisper
carries me

Again the waves
roll softly
tears blend
with salty mist
with one breath
of your presence
I felt
a loving kiss


Just for the love of it phrase challenge
'With one breath'
