Sailing Away

I dreamt that we sailed away,

you and I.

Away from the fear, away from our loss.

It was a dream of forgiveness,

a dream of understanding and hope.

With you by my side,

the smell of the sea,

the brief conversations with sea birds

we were free.

Free from our fear and loss,

the longing to be together, yet

drifting further each day.

I had forgotten what the sea smelled of,

until last night.

And you were there.

It was you and I.
