Shallow Waters

A Poem

Photo by Sven van der Pluijm on Unsplash

I swim through
the shallow waters
of your love,
hoping to find
a way home.
You dance alone
on a distant shore,
and drink
from a cup
filled with memories
of our youth.
Why have we
forgotten the power
of our love
to heal the pain
in our hearts?
Hold me
one last time
in your arms
and don’t let go.
