The waves carry you and I to meet
each creeps a little closer to my feet
I retreat, stung by approaching tide
I turn my back and try to hide
Hopelessly pulled back, my mind
succumbs to salty kisses entwined
Turn again with depth and force
of emotion from tempestuous source
Thrown up, smashed and broken
an inevitable part of loves token
Come back again and smooth me round
to just the way I was first found
Dissolve my heart into sandy grain
and wash away this endless pain

Tide in or out
Only shipwrecked love
Can bring those
Salty kisses back.
