never did the waves say good-bye

i’m intoxicated by her

and the way she makes me feel.

every minute brings me deeper in a love

i’ve never explored before.

i exist because of her!

she saw me crumbled

and picked up my broken pieces.

the haunting pain of a yesterday

soon sailed far away, off into a distance gone.

a sea once gray and angry,

i now swim free in deep waiting waters,

blue and hungry.

holding hands on the boardwalk above –

fishing on the edge of the pier

catching ourselves a new beginning.

on the beach we seek,

her and i.

never did the waves say good-bye,

oh!, never did the waves say good-bye!

i’m intoxicated by her

and the way she makes me feel.

every minute brings me deeper in a love

i’ve never explored before.

    I liked your play on words and glad the waves don’t say “Goodbye,” instead they motion us closer and whisper, “Jump in, the water’s fine!”
