We waited, breath bated

Two ships of the desert crossing the sand,
now standing, saddled for us to ride.
You in your boat, floating close to the shore,
dreading a change to an outgoing tide.
Between us a border guard, watching to see;
staunchly he stands between you and me.
We’ll wait. He’ll move on, seek something more.
Then you’ll swim to me here on the ashore.
