The Tide Rose High – 8/20/2013
You sailed out on a crimson wave through rough waters straight into my arms.
I looked deep into your ocean blue eyes and cried, overpowered with your beauty.
I held you tight, dripping saltwater tears onto your sand dollar skin,
heart heavy with promises to keep you safe from harm.
Then the tide rose high, higher than I could ever imagine, but I never let go.
I wrapped my arms around you like a rope, anchoring you to the shore.
I will tether you to the mooring, ride through the offing, drift with you to the distant sea,
always trying to pilot you gently back to calm waters.
