A Saltwater Love

All or nothing was the lesson;
a love rush blinded my equilibrium

You said to wait a while for love.

So many tides move, and the sea
whispers of the past and the future.

I learnt my lesson with your love.

Yet, the never ending wonder,
will you return to me?

Standing on the sand alone,
the sea whispers new words today.

A kiss on the cheek,
you’re lucky I’m so old;
becoming saltwater with you.

The Cherry Blossoms

And if this is my last Spring,
I will share my Spring with you.

We may talk about the old and the new;
silences will not be unknown to us.

And if the cherry blossoms bloom,
we may watch the way they move.

We may lose ourselves to our love,
thinking back to when we were young.

And if we forget that we are older,
I will dance with you upon the petals.
