Another day we went to the sea
Seagulls emerging from the clouds
Home bound birds and memories
Inside my heart lost love letters
Sand dunes and seashells
Night washed out in silence
Don’t want to wake up
Time a silent stalker
In an empty space on the sea waves
Seashells, mundane thoughts and imaginations
Inside me your existence
Sand dunes, quick sand and seashells
Fire in our hearts…
And we part…
