Gazing at people

On the beach... in breaking waves

Some hand in hand barefoot in the sand

Just what I am going through

They will never understand

Some try to tell me…

My thoughts they cannot defend

“Just what you want to be 

You will be at the end” 

Yeah right… 

I have unwritten letters in my heart

That’s never been send before

But now through my poetry

Was send to you at last!!

With these eyes of mine

I have missed the beauty of love

The beauty in truth was never mine

 I missed out in time

Oh! The beauty of loving you

Yes I love you yes I do

You are my wildest dreams

The day beneath the stars

The hope and prayer that

The universe will be ours

Wish I could be in your heart

This very moment

I wish I could be your eyes!!

Looking back

Gazing at people

On the beach

Alone in
