I found it, sipping a glass of wine..

We sat quietly
sand spilling between our toes
watching
the last glimpse of sun
dip below the dunes
she poured us a glass of Pinot’
we toasted the end of the day.

Our hearts drenched
in a sorrow filled peace,
Our minds hidden
in a broken ease.
The scent of the sea
filled our nostrils
Hiatt filled our ears,
soft and light, lifting
taking the weight of night
from our minds

The beach,
like the ocean
ebbed and flowed
with a tide of young lovers,
romancing hand in hand,
their love as new as the footprints
they left staggered in the sand.

It brought me back
to a moment in time
when love was fresh and new
when you loved me
without question
without condition
greeting my every arrival
with a tender kiss

Time hasn’t been that kind to us,
you have to agree
now, as we limp into the mid years of life,
regretful
long battered
on tirading tongues,
no longer filled with those kisses
the one and only thing
that had been the constant.

Oh if only for a moment
we could go back to that time
find our love again,
freshly renewed
a time when
with every thought
my heart ached just to share
another moment holding you

“Cause I’ve been loving you for such a long time babe”
“expecting nothing in return”
you sang out the words
harmonizing with the chorus
while your eyes caressed my face.

I want a love like that
with no inhibition,
conditions or ultimatums
she spoke softly,
carried on the wind to my ear.
I knew I owed her
nothing less than that.
Forgiving my trespass
she took my hand in hers,
holding it without condition.

I loved her
with conditions
never giving
the one thing
she needed most
my heart.

She loved me
without condition
never giving up
the one thing
I needed most
she gave willing
her heart

somewhere I lost that
if only for a while
she waited patiently
until
I found it there
on the beach
Sipping a glass of wine.

I found it, sipping a glass of wine..
