Ocean Waves, Part 2

Our visit was brief

But necessary.

 

It was good to

Get back to my roots-

Seeing you

Brought back so many memories.

 

Hearing you call out to me

Made me feel like a toddler

Stumbling over their feet

When they’re learning to walk,

But trusting

That you’ll be there

To catch them

When they fall.

 

Thank you for reminding me

Of who I am-

The strength I was born with.

 

Our bittersweet goodbyes

Will not last forever.

 

I leave,

Walking away

With sand trailing behind me,

But turn back

For one last glance.

 

Just in time

To watch you wave.

Ocean Waves, Part 1

I yearn to be in your presence,

Feel the warmth you provide

Just from being near.

 

Cleanse my soul

While I drink in your essence

Upon my return

And soak you in.

 

I promise to visit soon

And we’ll converse

In our own language-

A code

Made up

Of whispers and secrets-

I’ll tell you of all my travels

And listen to your tales

Of everything you’ve witnessed

From around the world.

 

I can’t wait to see you again…

I’ll catch a glimpse of you in the distance

And you’ll wave,

Just like you always do,

Welcoming me home.

Hello to New Beginnings

Going somewhere?

Overloaded with stress

One day to the next

Days blend together

By and by as

Your youth fades away with

Efforts wasted and seemingly unnoticed.

 

How about something fresh?

Everybody deserves a break… to feel

Loved for who they choose to be, and to

Laugh away their misery.

Oh, the joy of new beginnings!

Sea Foam Bubbles

Pants rolled up and pushed up

Struggling to hold their place around my knees

As we walked side by side

With sand seeping through the holes between our toes

And you looked at me with a smile in your eyes

And shook your head at my childish play-

Feeling at home for the first time in years

I ran out into the ocean but it wanted to keep me there-

The salt clinging to my jeans

Made my body heavy in the frigid water

As you watched me, you in the sand still smiling

And I struggling to get back to you;

Until the ocean sent a wave that carried me back to shore

And chased me away from its edge

Leaving nothing but a trace of the sea foam bubbles at my heels

And you.
