Excited heads hanging over a dock,
Watching the reflections of seagulls.
Urgent days and helpless nights,
Future ephemeral as firefly lights.
COMING OF AGE:
Moonlight desire and Oceanside lust,
Seaking pleasure but finding trust.
SUMMER OF LIFE:
A familiar beach, an oldies station,
And wonderful memories.
FOUND THE HORIZON:
Together in the cottage looking at family photos,
Contented heads hanging over life.
To embrace eternity alone
And fall into the icy ocean
After far too long awake
Is the sole gift we can hope for.
The curse of love is regret
And the understanding that
We shall end up alone
Before the day is o'er.
