Middle Distance

You are now
as you were then
A figure in the middle distance
suddenly gone
And with the sand and my tears hot
I fought the knot of fear
that you wouldn't come back,
carried out by the tideless sea
Then lulled by your gentle laughter
I forgot.

It'd be thirteen years til you left my sight
slipped from my horizon
Only this time
with no way to come home
