Uncertain Dance (The Ebb and Flow of the Sea)

Uncertain Dance (The Ebb and Flow of the Sea)

How am I to find the rhythm
to this dance with alternating steps -
close, close, closer still
far, far, farther still?
difficult to fathom the depth
and then the distance
lives so closely entwined
then so separate
you so practical when I momentarily
hear your voice
like a business transaction
yet turning your words so poetically
to this love that we share
not whispered in my ears
but proclaimed to an audience of strangers

I am angry and ashamed -
my passion uncontrolled
it is much too soon to want so much
yet I yearned for this
the moment I first felt your touch
your hand in mine gently pulling me
into that so known
yet a vast sea of dreams
glimpsed in brilliant sunlight found

For now I cannot close my eyes
and simply let the river
flow by
