Love Lost to the Sands of Time

I felt her,
She stirred me.
An oasis in the sands of time,
She calmed me.
Raven-haired and chocolat-eyed,
She flowed through a memory,
I thought I’d lost.
She said nothing just put a finger to her perfect lips,
Then kissed me.
Amidst the colours of a burning sun, we held each other.
No words needed,
No questions asked,
We imprinted on the universe and knew happiness.
When I opened my eyes,
She was already fading.
Like the sands she’d come from my vision collapsed to dust,
As did my heart.
Somewhere out there it sweeps across the cosmos in temporal winds seeking her.
It will never rest,
Nor I,
Until it merges with her again.
It is my dream,
My hope,
My everything.
