When We Touch

When we touch
The waves ripple on the beach
Swell and recede, to wash the sand clean
Not like a storm, no tsunami, no crescendo or shattering
Just a gentle rise and fall, a soft glow that fades
A misty fog that tiptoes away
A hint of lavender or lilac
A subtle note that dies
Leaving us behind
Together
