Softly spoken

Soft words charm a man's resolve to dissolve

Soft lips affirm the illusion to stay

Never can thoughts decide not to waver

Between links that bind a soul from choice

Steady that anchor made hard rust away

In her soft waves his heart floats uncertain

The wind in his sails her very breath travels

The rudder guided by her whispering voice

For moments walking together in hand

Indented footprints pass in sand with time

In the finale his feet stop but not hers

His decision made not her destiny
