The Sea and the Mountain

The sea and the mountain were once lovers,
they spent the days together in the sunlight,
the energetic sea made love to the land through the night
and the mountain would hold the sea in her skirts.

The sea and the mountain were once lovers,
the sea lay at the land’s feet and worshipped her
the mountain was a shoulder for the sea to rest
their union was applauded by the clouds that passed by.

The sea and the mountain were once lovers,
but they were separated, torn apart.
The mountain retreated away from the sea
creating the beach, the small part of her she left behind.

The sea and the mountain were once lovers,
now they are a loveless distance apart,
the sea angers and thrashes the coast with great force
trying to break the division between his love and him.

The sea and the mountain were once lovers,
the mountain dwells alone away from the sea,
her quiet lands have calloused her emotions
underneath her soils, her anger burns.

The sea and the mountain were once lovers,
the sea still dreams of the mountain at night,
he reaches and tries to touch the mountain’s feet
but the guardian moon restricts his tide.

The sea and the mountain were once lovers,
And the sea still sings songs to the mountain,
on nights when the wind is strong he caresses her,
he sends her sweet spring showers to keep her alive.

The sea and the mountain were once lovers,
the mountain cries rivers because of her loss,
her currents reach the sea and he suffers
he drinks her tears to taste her once more.

The sea and the mountain were once lovers,
separated they now are to remain;
forever apart from the one they truly love,
only allowed to look at each other from afar.
