at last we found each other

 

 
we're children of the water
with the ocean in our eyes
we're windblown, wet and barefoot
we hear joy in seagull's cries
.
we're lost without the water
it's an element, we love
it's not a thing we can disguise
and in our pocket, shove
.
we wanted warmer waters
not the sea where we'd been tossed
at last, we found each other
though we weren't exactly lost
.
we're children of the summer
and our temperatures are hot
sometimes, our only language 
is a wink, a nod, a thought
.
we're lost without the summer
we don't do well in the cold
if sunshine has been snatched from us
our lives feel uncontrolled
.
we yearned for joys of summers
not the winter's chilly frost
at last, we found each other
though we weren't exactly lost
.
were children of wild passion
and our hearts have been exchanged
our souls have gone into a dance
our bodies, rearranged
.
we're lost if there's no passion
racing hearts just can't be slowed
we've finally intertwined our hands
and headed down the road
.
we wanted trust and passion
not a life where wires were crossed
at last, we found each other
though we weren't exactly lost

LOVED the cute flow and rhyme scheme of this. The repetition mirroring the title and the imagery were great too. I'm glad I stumbled on this little gem while browsing new content :)
