On this cold February evening
I gaze out across the ocean
The horizon is empty
Only a single star shines in the sky
Casting shadows on my soul
Are there butterflies where you walk?
Are you watching the stars that glitter above the water
Like strings of sparkling diamonds?
Or just listening to the tide moaning
Softly on the shore?
Is the ocean calm?
On this lonely shore where we pledged our love
And wrote our promises in the sand
I’ll sit and wait for eternity
Until the water forgets to sparkle again.
