That glimmer

I caught a ray of light that shone upon the place
we stood.

We glimpsed the skies beyond the grey clouds,
the restless seas.

You whisked me up mountains to see views
I never dreamed of.

I saw in you all that is,
I learnt in you all I am,
I felt in you all I could.

A crack that split across a glass of sand.
Silently at first, the grains slipped through,
until wide as an ocean, our dreams escaped.

A heart left holding the broken shards
that glimmer in the fleeting light
as night descends upon the desert sands.
