Across waves

Beside me yet oh so far away
In my mind I see so clearly
These days that blend
Creating moving pictures
Of lucid thoughts
Of words
Of emotions that wash over me
Like the softest ocean breeze.
Across waves there lies a place
A home in my heart
I’ve never been
But to see it all so clearly
Reflections of tomorrow
With the sun resting down to sleep
Peacefulness flows through my heart
And I look up to see it all
Through the clouds
The stars beckon my dreams
To come to the surface
To slip across the damp sand
And find my hands cupped waiting
To drink from the bounty
Of life.
