I LOOKED OUT UPON THE SEA

I LOOKED OUT UPON THE SEA
I looked out upon on the sea
To wonder what the sea would think
The most that I conceived was this
The sea was looking back at me

What was it, then I through I saw
When waves came up to lash the shore
Why are you so peaceful , why are so at ease
Don’t you storm and rage and threaten

I thought how cold your core can be, how deep
How treacherous at your tide
How gentle at your helm

Perhaps you know within your depth
That not so much is different then
You understand my human whim to 
Set aside to watch your stride
Perhaps our thoughts have mingled so

That we are much alike at sea
As friends would meet to soothe and cope
I calm you as you do me
