The Beach

Our blanket on the beach is soft and warm
The stars we saw last night are fast asleep
I’m comfortable with you; you are my norm
There’s things I’d give away, but you, I’ll keep
I hear the rhythm of the wreckless sea
I hear the calm expressions of your breath
I hear your heart, and know I want to be
Forever by your side, so far from death
Your silence and your words invite my reach
I never knew my thoughts were grains of sand
I never knew my lover was my beach
We never knew the ocean would expand
And yet, we spread our blanket on the shore
Upon the bed of sand we both adore.
