The Step That Matters

I tried so hard today
to keep this loneliness at bay
yet just one thought of you
and our distant separation
brings sorrow in vibrations
ringing through my heart

and I wonder why it is we're made to part
so often and so swift
when softly, even now, my soul will drift
upon the tides
searching currents running wide
for just one touch of you

as through and through
an aching need extends
beyond this time that never ends
beneath the rolling ocean's waves
above the clouds that play
in sunlight's wake
and ask

How many moons will we let pass
before we take the step that matters?
