I feel you walking next to me
I hear you whisper in my ear
“I am not very far away
I am with you, I am here”.

Is it just an illusion?
Wishful thinking on my part?
Have you come back to be with me
To help mend my broken heart?

I fantasize about you
I pretend we’re holding hands
I tell you about my worries
Because I know you understand.

I take a walk down to the beach
But it’s lonely without you
There’s no one that I can talk to
No one I want, but you.

I look out onto the water
I watch the dolphins having fun
They swim in and out beneath the waves
Beneath the rising sun.

The osprey and the sand cranes
Come close, fly near the shore
I can share a day like this, with you
The way we did before.

You sing to me in the ocean breeze
Wish I knew just what to do
Softly, I can hear your voice
So warm and oh so true.

We loved spending time together
Every minute that we could
Walking along the shoreline
Finding pieces of old driftwood.

Like shells that line the beaches
Some big and some quite small
The children building sand castles
Theirs soon to crumble and to fall.

The ocean’s tide keeps coming
No matter what we do
I can’t hold back my thoughts and dreams
The thoughts I dream of you.
