Somewhere Out There--Poetry
I look for you among the unknowns milling around the docks
Sitting high above the deep blue sea
Catching a glimpse of awakened past memories
Held tightly inside pleading to be set free
White caps dancing merrily across the shore
Remembering the good times once more
Dreamy days of being lazy
Walking through fields of wild, yellow dasies
Building sand castles, strolling barefoot in the tingling white sand
Forever seeking that glowing, bronze tan
Sometimes just doing nothing, holding each other tight
Napping till wee hours in the night
Holding no ridged schedule, living life with heightened delight
Enjoying life, no thought of any heartache pain
Through the torrid storms of life, rarely did it rain
Then one day it happened, the wind began to blow
Waves washing our sand castle's to the sea depth below
No longer walking together, or holding each other's hand
We seemed to drift apart like the wind parted the sand
Now seeing only white caps flapping against the jagged rocks
Forever searching for you among the unknowns milling around the docks
Maybe someday you'll be strolling casually along our once loved sea?
Looking down at the crowd, my eyes see you
Perhaps you'll look up and see me?
