Lilah


I called her name in the calmness of the wind
I watched her hair tumble down
like rocks down a seaside cliff
lilah was a rainbow above me
she held my hand today
and kissed my rosy face

lilah was away
the winds carried her beyond the sand
subtle rolls of thunder echoed through salty air
and lightning flashed around me
but she was smiling down
like the sun lights up for a flower
I waved goodbye
and watched the sky change

lilah was a hurricane
and I was caught in the pouring rain
the crashing waves on the sandy shore
swept the castles we once made
lilah cried out
she remembered those days
of castle building and sailing
of dancing and singing
but she was a storm
and I watched those memories fade

in the seaside fog, I found her
walking to the borderline
where sand meets sea
where worlds collide
like her ever changing mind
I could talk to her
I could hold her
maybe even kiss her
but the calmness of the sea
put me at ease
she shot a grin at me
and I watched the sky change
