the subtle caress of your lips.
I've eased my mind's worry in the warmth of your smile,
the soft embrace of your kiss.
But, the time of our parting has been of a length,
that I scarce can recall your words' sound.
And, I fear in the depths of this consuming absence,
your passions withheld, your spirit's now bound.
I have not the strength to fight such a foe,
as wild and untamed as the sea.
I have not the will to stand at your door,
and demand your decision to be,
As one or the other, the sea or my love,
I know I would fail to win thee.
My only request, when you've ventured enough,
Remember! And, return unto me.
