In Waves [Poem]

I miss you in waves
the tides of my memory
beaching your boat on my shores
when I least expect your arrival

the wind whispers pulling me to the window
where I can see you shimmering
somewhere out there
at the edge of the water

but the tides change their course
before I can call out to you
pulling you out past the breakers
far from my sight

I wake up covered in sweat
a salty taste on my tongue
crying out your name
