Burdened by ghosts and haunted memories

The nostalgia is nauseating

But your voice echoes through the night

Healing waters fill the chasms and smooth out the rocky facade

Over time the edges fade,

And what was once a hollow soul 

Becomes whole again

To face the light of another day

 

Love warm like the stream of sunlight upon your face

I reach out my hands

Searching for someone to embrace

Grains of sand slipping through my cold fingers 

To create another shore.
