“As I Breathe The Fresh Air”

I wonder why… the sea is so lonely today
I feel the cold water at my feet
And I breathe the fresh air
I don’t know what to do…
Because I miss you so very much you know
And when I miss you… I come here… to think
I can’t take it

When I can't talk to you
I feel strangled by my love for you
Why is it… that I choke
Every time your name enters my mind
Or when my thoughts…
Just wanders in your direction
Is that why… the sea is lonely too today?
Because I am so damn lonely without you
I breathe some more fresh air…
And I push my toes into the sand
And I dream… we play “Footsy”
And I embrace my self as I look up
And far above…

A seagulls’call greets me
Was that perhaps

You calling out to me too!!
Answering me from afar…
Or… was it

Just wishful thinking
Once again!!

I agree that it is a beautiful melancholy poem...

Yet there is always wisdom to be found in the seagulls’ call. Sort of Gods' special messenger...

Tinka, a beautiful capture of longing. Listen to those gulls. I believe they have a message for you. Dawn
Reviewed by Sherry Heim 4/19/2005
Nothing happens by chance, Tinka. If you knew the voice of the Gull was a connection, then it certainly must have been. We can be one in spirit with those we are unable to be physically near.
Take care,
