not unnoticed

you were not unnoticed
though I trod so gently
not a blade was bent
between us
for uncertain ties
I tempered tempests
and stilled the stirring tides
that threatened froth
over still staid rocks
if not for the confines
of adamant time
for you
I would have torn these shores
would have conjured
crazed waves
and cast these stones
into deeper depths
than I dared delve
you were not unnoticed
though I passed through
so quietly
not a sigh was lost
between us
