The tide went out at dusk

Left only one of us remembering

That snow on Valentines

The red in your cheeks

Over that long grey coat

Over that smile I haven’t seen for days.

The tide comes back in in the morning.

You’ll see me, know me,


But the water keeps a little more every time

In and out love.

In and out.

I’ll tread that water with you

Until we drown.
