Presence intact

Brighton Pier

The sun dances on the water

Stars rising from beneath

The seaweed on the shoreline

Forms a natural, coastal wreath

 

Lovers hugged by all their layers

Lying in their warm embrace

The elderly cocooned by blankets

Countless memories, they retrace

 

Young hands are building castles

Singing aloud, their own delight

Parents lost in checking iPhones

Communing only through satellite

 

Brave souls both shoe and sock-less

Wade in water, barely thawed

From the frosty, icy winter

Toes emerging cold and gnawed

 

Greasy smells of fish and chips

Mix with, the salty air

Attracting fearless seagulls

Bombard the tourists, unaware

 

The half-moon, observes in silence

Caressing pebbles with its gaze

Sharing the sky in daylight

Within its lunar cyclical phase

 

Myself, I sit and remember

Knowing this is where we sat

When we made out lifelong promise

Your presence remains intact
