- What Matters
I remember the first day I spent at the ocean.
I remember walking along the shore
Searching for shells to take home.
I remember the white, wet beach sand
Squishing between my toes
And around my feet,
Making them cold.
I remember leaving footprints everywhere I went.
I remember the early morning sun rising beyond the ocean.
I remember the warm-colored pattern across the sky
That the sunrise created.
I remember the cold, salty ocean water
Splashing around my feet
Sending chills up my body.
I remember the crabs scurrying across my feet when the tide descended,
Trying to bury themselves deep into the sand.
I remember the vast expanse of ocean,
Never able to see where it ended,
Only where it began.
Although visiting the ocean for the first time was a fantastic memory,
My favorite memory is yet to come.
