She was finely built

and moved with a regal bearing

swiftly and silently

gliding through the water

I often stood on the bridge

savouring the sea spray on my face

tasting the saltiness on my tongue

inhaling the warm sea breeze

as it whipped my hair across my face

feeling alive like never before

now as I read your mail about your voyage

I realise how much I am missing it all

and most of all being with you.

  1. This is what it is like to love. A beautiful description of how it is to share that space with the one you love. Sending hugs and war thoughts today as you miss him ❀
