Staring at the Sea


Staring at the sea
As the waves crash around me
The vast emptiness surrounding
Brings back old memories
So I sit here alone, staring at the sea
Think back to yesterdays, with thoughts of you and me
And as I gaze into the night sky above this hallowed scene
I'm reminded how it all went wrong, how some things can never be
But still, I recollect to memories so sweet
And wondering if there's any way to make it all repeat

Is the first chance gone
A second done
In nothing but defeat
Or is there some higher meaning
Some reason for believing
That and end is no beginning
That this love that I'm defending
Is nothing but my fondest memory?

So, I sit here, and I ponder
While I'm staring at the sea
Listening intently
As the waves crash all around me
I continue to wonder
While I'm staring at the sea
Breathing in so sweetly
The air surrounding me

Author's Notes/Comments: 

A toast, to a fond memory
Of things that are, and can never be

This is amazing. Oh RoC is just pure love. You see how love brings you back to what is most important in life. Nature and her healing ways touching your soul...showing you you do not have to hurt...she is there. Always always...pure, all of us are part of her...without her we are nothing.Blessings for a productive and love filled new year. ♡♥♡((((BIG HUGZ))))

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
