Sanctuary

The countless hours I've spent alone ...
thinking of you.
Footprints I've left on the beach
serve as reminders
of those lonely days.
Walking slowly
letting the surf rush over my feet.
Slowly ...
slowly.

Slowly passes the time when I'm alone,
but it goes so fast
when I'm with you.
Slowly,
like a wave making its way
towards the shore,
yet it rushes so fast
to go back to the sea.

The green field I walk through
surrounded by
the tree covered hills,
offers a quiet sanctuary
where I can retreat
with my thoughts of you.
Thoughts of how much I want you,
and how much I need you,
and how much I love you.
