By Mark A. Leon
Every time the wind blows, I hear your voice
Waiting for the waves to wash up your bottle
A sacred blessing in a pool of broken dreams
This rock is my home, my eyes a lighthouse, my heart the siren calling you in
Drunk on the fog and loneliness I run weary
Never to give up hope
Every minute, a chance
Sails from distant shores parade their masses
Are you on one of them?
A surprise from the ocean gods
Gift wrapped in a smile
Will the infinite sea swallow up this faith?
The congregation of dolphins sing
Pastor on the pedestal of white clouds
Waiting for my prayers to be answered
Let me sacrifice myself for her safety
Let me give my life so that she may have another
Let me be remembered in her children and grandchildren as I lay peacefully in my eternal rest
On this rock, I sit screaming silently
Each morning I arrive
Each night I sigh
Will this day bring her home?
Will this be the day I am reunited with the other half of my soul?
I sit and wait today
Rain cleanses this worn-out skin
