This beautiful ache
wrapped ‘round my soul
reaching for you
recalls kisses we stole
needing your touch
to vanquish the flame
that burns with the lust
of hearing your name

And I cry out here
where I’m caught alone
with only a mem’ry
to make me feel whole
With naught but a ghost
to lie down beside me
Only a thought
to speak to and guide me

But you do
with your heart
with the words that you speak
with your confessions of love
that slide through the deep
this abiding ocean
we rock upon
locked in the arms of
a forgotten love song

Because love sometimes aches
sometimes burdens and cries
sometimes it leaves,
or it fades, or it hides,
but it always returns
to find us forever
aching and loving
surviving together.
