Rolling waves seem to create,
And yet destroy,
What they began to mold,
Tucking and sliding about,
Tossing and tumbling,
Like large water-droplets.
The sea reflects everything,
That mirrors in it's surface,
Spinning it around like a great big wheel,
Reaching far beyond eternity,
To the lands of my birth.
I wish that I could just drift away,
On those calm, yet peaceful waves,
Returning to those calm waters I once knew,
And loved so very dearly,
Where fond memories still lay dormant.
But this prison seems to bind me,
To this place of no return,
A paradise unlike any imaginable,
Where only me and my thoughts dwell,
Shifting like the sands of an hourglass,
Being flipped over to begin anew.
I watched as the tide came in,
Pulling the last rays of the setting sun,
Out into the never-ending vastness,
Of the deep crystal blue sea.
And the stars began to twinkle in the sky,
Like warriors of old, trying to guide me,
Guide me back to the one I love,
Who's memory shall soon fade away,
With the passing of time.
But I will hold onto this piece,
And will wish upon the stars,
That one day I will make it back,
Back where I belong in your arms,
And close to your everlasting heart.
