Comings and Goings

Waves upon waves–darkness and light
Waves upon waves–laughter and tears
Arrivals at dawn, goodbyes at night

Waves upon waves:
floating down the stream.
One lonely touch, a tryst in a dream.
The wave of a hand, the turn of a head
Lost hopes of lifetimes
Lost with the dead.

Yet, desire. No strength
But a life full of toil.
Bow broken boat adrift on the waves
Wave upon wave
Swirl upon roil.
Yet, desire. No words
But a heart broken voice.
Half-hearted love
half weep, half rejoice.

And waves upon waves upon waves upon waves
upon waves upon waves
upon waves
upon
waves.
