I watch the soft sea touch the shore with lovers faint caress,
Its fingers sinking deep into its yielded goldenness,
I see the foam throw out its breast to smother all below
And I remember you were here, and how I miss you so.
I watch the sun lean down to kiss the fair skin turning brown,
And see the beads of dew-like sweat from each curve trickle down,
I hear the sound of people doing things that people do,
And I begin to weep inside, because I'm missing you.
The blue skies beam your eyes at me, the warm wind is your
The golden sun, your smile that always brought such happiness,
I cannot see taught muscled forms without I yearn to touch
Because my heart is filled with you and I love you so much.
And only when I close my eyes and see you once again
Can I forget, in dreams, that every moment cries in pain,
And just to feel your arms would somehow turn my night to day
Because without you, nothing ever matters anyway.
