where are you?

it’s been ages
but you’re still a part of my soul

like a flaw in a perfect diamond

it makes me shimmer

and life goes on

the water echoes and splashes
and the light refracts all around us
and somehow it’s just the magic of god
or some network of infinite laws
that surpass our ability to explain
with mere words

and we’re still just people

crazy crazy crazy people

footprints

i’ve forgotten so many of our memories
they seem to wash out to sea
lost in the sand of living each day

but there are a few things that remain
like footprints in the sand
