In quiet moments, in slow and subtle ways, its nature is revealed

The ocean licks up against the shoreline
And I wonder where you are
And how you allow me to continue like this
Absent from you,
Taking ages and tides into my self

Why this long wait, why this incarnation
Down here

And I understand there is work to be done
Stars to light
And ships to guide home
But I had a promise,
Long ago now
For kind company
And kisses

My eternal life so wonderfully bound into the heart and hands of human form

I can sleep the most epic of sleeps
And slide through space
Without time
To wake each day
Yet curious of the absence of you

Each night I’m sure I find you
Or in strange ways you meet me smiling at the sunset
But this life is full and must be counted on more than two hands
