The sky was a multitude of colours,
The waves crashing onto the sand,
The salty foam telling a tale untold
While the wind carried our music
Far and wide into the world.
We sat on top of that hill together,
Side by side, our hands intertwined,
As the night passed us by
In a maelstrom of emotions.
But for me, time had fallen still.
The pulsating lights of the clubs
Overflowing onto the waves
Their techno beats a harsh echo
Of all the superfluous things we search for
In our quest for something fickle.
But it all faded into the night
As the sound of your heartbeats
And the warmth of your hand in mine
Made the darkness feel bright again.
The silence, usually so deafening and loud,
Now was filled with hope and peace,
A common thread that linked us with one another
An unspoken promise that held us together
Keeping us grounded and one with this world.
