Love is a Shifting Tide

All at once filled with a gentle caress

The foamy softness washing over me

Laced with the salt stinging, burning

Followed by the cool soothing breeze.

 

Love is a shifting tide,

Pulling us as grains of sand

First tumbling then resisting, still

Constant motion, shifting, changing.

 

Love is a shifting tide,

Gentle and rough, soft yet unyielding

As night falls the moon takes over

Hammering the shore, crushing, relentless

 

Love is a shifting tide

So different now as day break dawns

Coming so quietly now with brooding calm

Leaving me to wait, watching in hopeful wonder

 

Until the certainty of the tide shifts again…
