It's the same moon that you whisper goodnight to
It's the same sun that kisses your skin in the morning
both of our lives play out, under a marble sky
living, dying, smiling, laughing, crying

It's the same stars that you make a wish upon
It's the same breeze that rustles through the trees
yet I wonder, do you look up at the feathered clouds
and dream about me now and then?

It's the same ocean though opposite sides
It's the same grains of sand under your feet
carried by frothy fingers from my world to yours
from regions unknown, to me, to you

It's the same heart that's breaking for you, for me
It's the same tears, the same words, the same ache
when I let you go, out of duty or pride or fear
when I walked away, and left you alone

to stand there
‘neath the clouds
with no silver lining
on a deserted winter beach
with no sea gull's call
as your tears fell
mingling with the rain
falling to the sea
to wash away
carried to me
on the waves of pain
the foam of regret
and the swells of memories

(In my heart whispers of words,
ones I can't bear to hear. The ones
you said to me, just before I left.
"Don't You Walk Away.")

Well done Izzy. I like the imagery of the derserted beach, and the feelings the poem portrayed.
