Wash Away My Tears

I see the sail disappearing Upon the horizon blue. Waves crashing on the shore As mind thinks back to you. You are like the sail That no longer do I see. Seems that a waft of wind Has taken you from me. Was it not so long ago We sat upon this shore? Words whisper of tomorrow. We'd be one forever more. How we laughed and giggled, Waves washed between our toes Words of I love you From our lips so easily flowed. Our bodies so entangled On the blanket we did share. Made love under moonbeams As waves threw mist up in the air. That was forty years ago We made love upon this shore. Still have that blanket I will keep for ever more. You are no longer with me The tide has taken you away. But in my mind and heart There you will never stray. So come sit here beside me Whisper I love you in my ear. Hold me close and kiss me And wash away my tears.
