Alone

When I remember you,
I see the lonely wave,
lost on it’s way to shore,
and they ask us why,
and I know why,
That’s just the way we are.

And we sit and we wonder why?
I don’t know.
I just know you,
and that is enough.

When the wind flows through our hair,
and the sun tans our skin,
and our eyes glow in the night,
and I feel alone,
you are just the way you are.

Our bodies are lean,
our faces round,
slight and slender,
and we sit and we ponder,
and that is the way we are.

And as you grow strong,
and myself confused,
and our fingers entwine,
the wave is lost.

Seasons change,
and so do I,
but you stand still.
caressing the satin like clouds,
with their vitreous tendrils,

And then we see the storm,
its primitive light,
and glazed silver eyes,
and I cry without tears.

But what would you say?
Love is only love,
Never leave me alone,
in this vast ocean.

But what would you do?
if you were held down,
your life would slowly fade away,
and what would I do?

Nothing is meant to be,
in this sea of nothingness.

We are the way we are.

Great poem!  My only criticism is that in the beginning, it's should be replaced by its since it is not used as a contraction.
