Sea glass

She’s like sea glass
sharpest and able to cause the most damage while young
but beautiful and safe as she ages
a wildfire that may burn those too close
turned to an everlasting flame of love and certainty with time
She’s the person whose time I would most like to share
but the one that belongs too much to the world right now
I can only hope for the world to tell her its secrets
so she may return and I will find her waiting
still with the same gleam in her eye 
but with a knowing smile and tender touch
