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?
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.
