salt spray

it was so long ago
when late summer brought us to the sea
and love that could have spoken its name
went mute amid the growing night
i saw beauty two fold
and i saw your face grow cold
even as the heat rose in the room
and if had known
that would be the last moment of time
shared between you and me
i would've wrapped you up
like those waves that danced on your skin
wiped the salt spray out of your eyes
and let you see
how you lived inside of me
and now
that first moment when i swim
and saltwater makes me blink
is always going to frame you
in blinding light and cool surf
