Ashes in the Wind
i hold you close in my arms
as we take our last stroll
down the beach
with seagulls screeching overhead
and waves crashing
and thrashing towards the shore
my eyes well-up
and tears stream down my face
an overwhelming sense of sadness
takes hold of me
and as we climb the mountainous sands
i think about the sound of your laughter
i remember our first piggyback ride
and the first time that we danced
i wonder why the more i learn

the more i realize
how much i don't know

as we reach the top of the cliff
i stand still
mesmerized by the beauty
of the deep blue sea
and calmed by the peaceful
breaking waves
as i open your urn
my hands shake
with sadness and pain
i remove your ashes from
your temporary home
and toss them into the wind

ashes in the wind
ashes in the wind
then i bury your urn
in one of our favorite nooks
deep in the sand on the cliff
so that traces of you will forever be
part of La Jolla Beach
then i trudge back to the shore below
then i realize that your ashes
are swirling all around me
blowing in the wind
then i feel joy in knowing
that you are free
from your earthly shell
and that you will find me
when my time comes
until then
i know that our love will last
as we move from this life to the next
and so i wait
to see your face once again
and when i do
i will remember that
our love is stronger
than a waking giant
and it will endure
until the end of time
ashes in the wind
ashes in the wind
