I am not an island
although I feel these waters closing in;
I am not an island

His hands like waves shaped my shores,
and her words the wind
that whips the sand
and bends my trees

but I am not an island.

Time and tide ebbed,
driftwood gifts -
the things I learned
from broken hearts and joy
and now

how fast the bridges build
(and burn, and burn)
and build again

I hold the wind and waves and sand
in my own hand

I am not an island.
