Starlight Sea

I want to drift to sea with you

Only seeing by starlight

The moon a spotlight on us

As we gently rock on the waves

No ships to distract us

As we float into the night

Resting my head on your shoulder

As you sing softly to me


I want to drift to sea with you

Only seeing by starlight

Wrapped up in a blanket

We share more than warmth

Fish are jumping beside us

Trying to see what love’s about

We kiss until we hit the shore

Only hungry for so much more


I want to feel the sand with you

stepping lightly with bare feet

As you chase me on the beach

In a playful moment of happiness

Letting you catch me

I give to you your prize

We are one spread out on a blanket

Love’s passion reaches its peak

The ship lurched from one side to the other.

The storm had come up suddenly and

It caught us unaware, far from the shore.

The increased motion was making me ill,

Like the words you had just said.

You said it was over, you didn’t love me.

It felt like a slap in the face and

Mixed with the waves on the water

I felt the world was turning on me.

We would make our way back to shore

But would we ever make it back to us;

Or were we the shipwreck that night

That was brought down by the storm?
