Misty Promises of the Deep

The conquering heroes of love sailed into the harbor
Their mariner souls, whispers made by ocean’s sighs
They swam naked, baptized by the salty water and air
A holy sight of angels floating, our wings point to the skies

The magnificent lovers of triumphant seas that wave goodbye
They fell onto the sand so they could finally breathe
The shells dug their way in, to be near where echoes begin
Echoes, echoes of our purity, that children might believe

The misty promises of the deep
Sandcastles that would promise keep
To be revisited on foot and thought
Whether awake or inside dream sleep

They climbed the white skyscrapers of ocean born sand
No leaves to sweep, only a soft powder skin of perfection
Until they looked back at their scattered wispy footprints
They realized how fleeting time was in their recollection

They couldn’t decide if it was a sunrise or sunset at the summit
They were ready to stand by the words they spoke in the deep
Their vows burned into the dawn and the dusk, it was their choice
As the gift of such a swirling misty promise was theirs to keep

The misty promises of the deep
Sandcastles that would promise keep
To be revisited on foot and thought
Whether awake or inside dream sleep
