Letters to the Ocean

I wrote letters to the ocean
the day you went away
and slipped out of my reach
like vapour in the wind.
There is too much
distance between us.
Don’t let the last of this light
turn our hearts into stone.
Convince me that everything
comes full circle,
and like rolled up love letters
in empty glass bottles
washed up from sea,
we will find our way
back to these shores again.
