Prior To The Twilight

Prior To The Twilight short poem

Photo by VicWJ

In the silence of the blue ocean tides,
As the water sweeps on the sea rides
I feel you are with me; holding my hands,
Walking slowly along the cold wet sands,
Knowing that one fine dawn we shall meet.
In the calmness of the early birds greet
There is only few seagulls cry will reside
Out in the ocean, watch small boat slide,
Somewhere, west winds touch the sunset,
Prior to the twilight, you will come to rest,
With tears of gladness, in your blue eye
You watch the fish, whispering good bye
Where is my darling, please do not hide,
I have waited so long, to be by your side
