Oceanic Reverie

I stood at the edge of the ocean,

Thinking on life decisions I’ve made,

I was transfixed by the waves motion,

They drew me in closer, into the water I wade,

Sunrise at the ocean shore

The sun’s rays washed me in their warmth,

Soothing my mind’s inner storm,

Lost was I in the tides that ebbed and flowed,

My heart overflowing, a tear showed,

Everything has led me here,

Gone is the girl led by fear,

That girl you loved has long past been dead,

A newly arisen woman remains in her stead,

Revisit that girl in her mealy bed,

The past is laid to rest for the future ahead.
