Colourless (The Ground Beneath)


Memories drift in

Like old ghosts

The last time I saw you

A stormy day

Colourless melancholy

An aching sea

Driftwood twisting

Birdsong drifting

In this moment

I feel you near

We were

A heartbeat short

Of eternity

Now only my love

Remains

And only the ground

Beneath
