The calmth sensed only by the ones who die
Like oceans live in waves and foaming tears
The last wave lands in understanding sigh

It saw the low, now ending in a high
To close the eyes of he who drowns, who hears
The calmth sensed only by the ones who die

And us as well as craziness goes by
When we have buried kin and friends and peers
The last wave lands in understanding sigh

For it was love that made us steal, we try
To deal with sin as good as it appears
The calmth sensed only by the ones who die

Is ours, we watch the sea move on, and I
Know well that moment to be best in years
The last wave lands in understanding sigh

Our first encounter and our last goodbye
Remains in echos over misty piers
The calmth sensed only by the ones who die
The last wave lands in understanding sigh.

      Thank you! I am not sure about “for he who drowns” but “for him who drowns ” doesn’t sound well. So if anyone knows which form it should be, please tell me πŸ™‚

      • This is a difficult one – it would be ‘close the eyes of him’ but ‘of him who drowns’ . I can see why you have chose not to use ‘one’ again, and I suppose ‘a drowning man’ would upset the metre. I’m afraid this is probably not helpful

  3. Strong, sometimes raw emotion expressed so beautifully.

  4. A beautiful and delicate description of love, loss, remembrance and grief written in your own and unique voice which I enjoy reading so much
