The Sea

I wish I could bottle it,

like a message floating across the world.

the smell of the water, the salty wind

blows through my hair like your fingers.

I wish I could capture this image, as it was,

through my eyes,

magical, mystic, serene,

in this very moment.

I find comfort, knowing you'll always be here,

it brings me back each time.

you're a good friend,

always here to listen.

your power draws all,

lovers, sinners, forgivers...

you rejoice in our joy and in our pain.

you celebrate all the miracles we offer you,

and give us warning when we get to close.

your beauty is unmatched.
