Like Children on the Shore

The burning of a thousand stars in space
Cannot dim the fire you light within
As they glow in cold-frozen space
Your warmth walks beside me here
To hold my sadness and calm my fear

I would want the freedom of solitude
Time unbidden by other hearts or minds
I would visit and move on to newness
There would seldom be a pause to reflect
Oftimes, little to remember and little to regret

But now; now where do I run to hide away?
I do not seek you in my daily adventures
Yet, there you are, there we are, always
Hand in hand like children on the shore
Sometimes I wonder if we’ve met before.

in your dreams...LOL

but windows of what might be, what will be, and what we fear?

Sometimes, I believe they are whispers from our past as well.

(Rogers and Hart)
It seems we stood and talked like this, before
We looked at each other in the same way then
But I can't remember where or when
The clothes you're wearing are the clothes you wore
The smile you are smiling you were smiling then
But I can't remember where or when
Some things that happened for the first time
Seem to be happening again
And so it seems that we have met before
And that we laughed before, also loved before
But who knows where or when


you hide a romantic soul JMARC

Thank you for the thought. I'm sure this is a very personal statement of longing and wonderment. When read a few times,it takes in deeper feelings. And the innocent children on the shore do not look at all lost. They appear beautifully there. Christina
