“Just wind and waves…”

When old friends reappear, what does
It mean? Old memories resurrected,
More oft left alone, unmentioned.
We have changed, I’m not the same,
Time and life exacting their salty
Toll. “Nice to talk,” means thanks,
But what’s accomplished rehashing
Years past? I’m married now, with
No desire of returning to Peggy’s Cove,
Sandy shores of Cape Sable Island.
I’m not that person anymore. She
Died painful death when you walked
Out, without a word, no goodbyes,
Just wind and waves.
