Drowning in the Dark

a rippled moon beats in line
my heart rivals its glow

sitting in the sand at night
the sound of waves
as life moves slow

you are not here
but once you were
and in the waves
and in the sand
and in the breeze
I feel you near

a life complete as it can be
the dark engulfs,
I feel no fear

black and cold
yet warm and light
liquid death

till soon, my dear
