A mere wave’s life.

To break free

of the ocean’s embrace, a mere wave, I see

A fierce beast, from a distance

It grazes the shore and what pulls it back?

Maybe, remembrance.

It tries till it tires

Relentlessy, over lifetimes

yet, the ocean pulls it back

Mercilessly over lifetmes

And I think of you

A mere wave in an ocean

And I’ve crooned the sweetest songs to lure you out

I’ve sung prayers day and night to make you mine

It must have hurt.

Still it fills me with life

To see you come rushing to me

Each time, towards the shore, I see.
