selfless poem.


When you stand by the ocean

you’ll see my footprints in the sand.

I’m not physically beside you,

but you know just where I am.

Looking down on you from Heaven,

watching your brown hair blow,

sending my kisses through the waves

in hope they’ll reach you below.

I’ve loved you for years,

I’ll love you for the rest of your days.

Please don’t be afraid to love again,

even if it’s not me catching your gaze.
