Fare thee well, love
for I have seen thy waters
I have run mine toes about thy shores
brushing the sand beneath mine feet
as the tide draws near.

Fare thee well, love
For I have kissed thy lips
I have breathed in thy scent
the poignant spices of the sea
as I withdraw from thy depths.

Fare thee well, love
For I have felt thy embrace
I have let thee slip away
to approach the gyres' whirl
as I am left ashore, forlorn.
