Just Beyond My Longest Reach ..........

Source
Source

When she goes to the shore and in
darkness lowers secretly into the sea

Naked and yearning she kicks
away the daytime. setting something free

And him .....he stands on distant mountains
squinting to lost horizons

And dreams of forbidden valleys
secret and heavenly suns arisen

Fingers reach in her breast stroke
a million drops of sea between

And in the darkness of the sea
she finds the distance of dream

In his suns early rising and in the
her darkest sea beyond

The longest reach is yearning and their
touch lies in a song

This made me cry for a long lost love who forever remains my heart and I his. Yet we are always apart, her sea and his sunrise never meet.
