as surely as the tide
rolls in across the sand
and foam’s kiss
spreads salty tears
below the palms
so surely will I love you
until the seas run dry
and bird-song fades
above the ebbing waves

but somewhere, sometime
beyond an open gate
as the sun goes down
you will be there, again

All streams run to the sea
but the sea is not full
to the place where the streams flow
there they continue to flow
