the world’s best kept secret,
and the world’s most known thing.
thousands have fallen in love to the crashing waves as they rise and fall to match the pace of their breath.
and when that breath steadies, and bleeds into a sigh
the ocean will be there, keeping a watchful eye.
it has watched lovers dance to moonlight, it has watched hearts break
and when two breaths become one, it’ll watch as it mimics behaviour
and will remain faithful all the same.
here long before, here once we’re gone
under the watchful eye of the moon.
