The ocean breeze draws near to me
A scent of salt and spray of sea.
The colors of the sunset glow
As if the sky is burning slow.
The crashing waves, they purr and roar;
Above me seagulls glide and soar.
The tide it pulls away the sand –
Before me now, an image grand.
I’ll live each day, this place in mind –
For even through the daily grind
This gift from God is my reprieve
And one day I will never leave...
For some day when my time has come,
I’ll fin’lly know where I am from –
His hand I’ll find within my reach
And He will lead me to this beach.
This poem is written for, and dedicated to, my mother. I love you, Mom.
