Somewhere Beyond Our Goodbyes


Somewhere Beyond Our Goodbyes


Look beyond the symmetry

of a perfect horizon

and note how the silver edge

arcs along those

shifting, unfamiliar lines,

like a smile arches upwards ..

Come walk with me

and let us sip the moments ..

Let us each rejoice

and ache together, for soon

the tide, shall turn against us ..

And then, we shall go

our separate ways, with just

a sorry farewell wave,

yet such, exquisite memories ..

    A fine write N.
    I said to KP 'Goodbye' a thousand times, but she comes back every time! I told her there's no need to hurry back, then under my breath said 'good riddance!' heehee.
