Inexorable Time

What can I say about the women I loved?
I lost them all and they are gone forever.
Only vague memories remain
Of fading faces in the haze of the past.
Of voices whisked away by the merciless wind.
Of smiles forgotten in the mist of time.
Of luminosity lost in shadows.
Of words of love turned into ashes.

I have not kept mementos of my loves.
All I can do when I wish to evoke them is,
While sitting on the shore,
To write their names upon the sand.
And when the bubbly waters erase
Each cherished name I bring it back once more
Upon my sight by writing it again
As challenge to the ruthlessness of time!
