Forever boardwalk

Translucent long sea
stretching forever
and ever

shimmering with
crystal clear
pale blueness

heavenly skies
warm yellow hues
entwined with blue

and a wandering
boardwalk as far
as the horizon

it beckons me
to find the
song of my heart

ever so gently
each plank cajoles
me come forth

I step and step
seeing familiar lines
in each wood

like
kindred souls
of my past

I step and step
deep blues rising
all around

in the air
in the sea
ever closer I get

And I step and step
feeling serene peace
love awaiting at end

beckoning me to keep
coming forth
which I do

The joy rises
heart beats faster
soul sings passionately

I step and step
feeling closer to
ecstatic union

While I can’t see her
I feel her there
my beloved, waiting

for that sweet embrace
loving kiss
together forever

I step
and I step
some more

And then
I wake up and wonder
what might have been.
