Dawn

Dawn's thin light creeps

around the room awaking me.

 

Taking me away

from my dreams - from you.

 

All I have left of you

are dreams. Only in dreams

 

can I touch you, hold you,

walk with you along the shore

 

of Accra beach. The white sand,

the rolling Atlantic waves -

 

Accra beach, our beach at midnight

when there was only us,

 

us and the friendly moon.

I remember the smell of the salty air

 

mixed with the scent of you.

The scent of you - sweeter than the rose

 

that climbs beneath my window,

now blushed with dew in the dawn.
