Say Nothing (Poem)

Let's watch the flames
Rage into ashy embers,
As the shore deadens
The wrath of the sea: We are witnesses.
Not mere witnesses;
Just a little accomplice
I see, in my mind's eye,
Your mind's eye looking
Into my mind's eye:
Two souls forever entwined, Not lost, not knowing;
Just somewhat aware.
I see their faces emblazoned on ours;
I hear their calls, not made by words.
I can hear them coming, can't you?
…say nothing.

Let's smile as we gaze into
These indifferent dying flames
And our hearts Sing unsung songs of love,
And the universe glad we share a space.
