Shifting Sands--By Annie Jenkin--England

Shifting Sands

Fingers clasped in secret dreams,
the silence echoes, might have been...
The shifting surf on shimmering sand,
or a stolen kiss upon a hand,

and you and I together there,
the perfect pair.
Yet, as the tides plot our course
in the morning when I am gone,

If memories still linger on,
look out to sea--I will be there
as the whispering breeze in your hair,
the surf a tender kiss,
and through my life and of my choice
I know your love I will miss.
