The sapphire glow

The sapphire glow

A Poem by grace
"

"i'll be here, even when no one ever will"

"
Waves racing the shore,
I watch them as they come and go.
Some pave their way and win,
Some fade away with the wind.

Yet some fleeting moments linger as they be,
Ephemeral like the sun meets the sea,
Those memories in minds sing like sirens,
Holding us captive in the azure silence.

Our lives, just like ships passing in the night,
Entwined in the tapestry of fate and chance,
And so as they unravel after a stolen glance,
Somehow, their scent envelops our essence.

From the dark abyss to the light of dusk,
I swam and drifted against the currents.
The wanderers that wove my bones got faded into the mist of blues,
But their relics anchored me to the shore.

Sometimes low as seashells sunken in the sand,
Longing at the harbor for the ships to land.
But i know they'll never come. Oh, i know they won't,
Yet i'll be here, i'll be here by the ocean's sapphire glow.

really like the title! nice hook says i! i feel very wistful in the reading ... we do well when memories are held captive in the azure silence and expanse of oceans .. i see her on the West Coast .. a private spot of rock and sand along the Pacific (if there is any left) our youth gives us the strength to swim against the currents and the ignorance to give it a go :)))))))) so many wanderers fade in a live long lived .. i remember them all .. some only met for a moment or two but i see them clearly .. i love my growing old, Ms. Grace .. thank you for reminding me of it

Thank you so much, again!
You have finely covered so much in this wonderful poem: emotions, experiences and the use of language metaphorical that enhance the wording start to finish. The following verse is one to learn and value:

'Our lives, just like ships passing in the night,
Entwined in the tapestry of fate and chance,
And so as they unravel after a stolen glance,
Somehow, their scent envelops our essence.'
