The calm waters edge
Splashes the shore,
The tranquil place,
The perfect place,
Anyone would want to be here.
The thoughts of family, friends
Anyone you wish to share this moment with,
Share this overwhelming feeling of joy swirling in your mind
This most amazing scene.
This picture displayed before your eyes
Makes you want to cry
The feeling of pride;
Pride, love for what is in front of your eyes.
This epic moment.
Sun shining on the sea
Creating an amazing contrast to the sky.
Below the sea lays,
Lay such unfathomable things.
As the sun slowly falls from the sky
You take time and realize
The feeling of being free.
When the sun’s light finally hides
You sit on the soft white sand
How can such a beautiful thing exist in this world of death?
The trees stir as the wind blows,
There is no more warmth of day,
Just the bright moons light
And the crisp air of night.
Close your eyes and relax.
Dream of the peaceful things,
You have seen.
The same scene surrounds you
Yet without the same feeling of joy.
The suns clouded,
Its darkness making the ocean look grey,
What was once a nice day
Has been shown the side of decay.
The wind flows around
But with a different tone,
The gentle, reassuring breeze
Something is wrong.
The soft, quiet ocean starts to turn tide
There is no sound.
Lightening crackles shattering the silence
Violent rain pounds the ground
And the ocean turns black,
The fury is coming.
Spin, turn, look for an escape
But no one is around;
Shut your eyes, drown out the noise
And think of that time.
The one with the nice breeze
And the clear sky
The one that made you cry;
Cry those tears of happiness and content.
The beautiful scene
That beautiful time.
The one with not a care in sight
The one where stars where always shined bright
And the water was a beautiful sight,
Yes, yes, once upon a time...
