When You are There

When you are there, 
In the mist
That salty barrier that swallows our kisses
I can only see half of your dreams
Those smiles are certainly,
memories I know I should be making
As quick as I can
Before you go. 

But like a spider, I weave only so fast… 
Only so fast before I know, 
That I have gathered all that I need, 
All I need before you go 
Back into the distant grey tides

When I am here, 
With nothing but sand to hold my weight of worries. 
Fistfuls of worry and love. 
You ought to know… 
I love you, even when you go…
Even more so when you go…
