Touaguba Hill

Written by: Michael Dom

I’ve said my goodbyes to you
A long time ago
But still the memories return
Haunting, waylaying me – in the night

I recall that night
I walked to Ela Beach
Just to be nearer
To speak to you

It was cold
It was beautiful
Beautiful and cold
Like you can be

I spoke to you
Said everything I needed to say 
On my knees 
In the sand

With the wind 
Whistling through the trees
And the waves
Breaking on the shore

How blissful
Natures lovemaking that night
I was there to witness
But you were asleep

Somewhere safe
On Touaguba Hill
Blissfully ignorant 
Of my words
My presence
My passing.
