As She Walked Along the Shore

As she walked along the shore

She could feel that the sea had been waiting for her
Patiently and expectantly longing for her

She could feel the sea calling her tears home
Gently and warmly inviting them to return

She could feel the sea within her
Freely and honestly surrender to the sea beside her

She could feel the storm of her tears
Violently and uncontrollably crashing back to the sea

She could feel the power of her tears
Forcefully and confidently rolling back to the sea

She could feel the softness of her tears
Calmly and contently rippling back to the sea

She could feel the relief of her tears
Sweetly and gratefully being welcomed back home

She could feel the sea within her unite with the sea beside her
Fully and unapologetically embracing the wholeness of their union

She could feel the natural, enduring, and unpredictable rhythms of the sea
Completely and assuredly trusting that they would never betray her
