Rising tides reveal
The meeting of light and dark
The meeting of land and water
The meeting between lovers

Waves lap against toes dug in sand
Fresh water washing away sins
Fresh new love washing away sadness
Fresh perspective making people alive

Moonbeams reflect eyes and smiles
Showing lovers learning curves
Showing dreams coming true
Showing time passing slowly

Wind cools burning skin
The meeting of tastes and feelings
Fresh flavors and new shadows
Showing dark places yet to be explored

Distant thunder cannot obscure
The canopy of stars overhead
Shining for two people
Who can only look into each other’s eyes
