I walked down to the ocean last night
And watched for the rising tide.
A storm was blowing in from the west
That matched what I could not hide.
A wave of sadness and loss rolled in
From heartbreak over the years.
They tried to erode the walls of my soul
With a sea of helpless tears.
The winds blew fierce across the waves
And salt spray hung in the air.
I fought to keep my body up right,
As the rain pelted my hair.
The storms of life had battered my heart
And my spirit relentlessly.
I was exhausted in body and soul.
I wanted to be free.
The storms died down and the sun came out
And the ocean was calm once more.
My soul found rest in love’s sweet light,
And I felt my spirit soar.
