The Ocean Blues

I opened my eyes
To find myself alone
In this wide ocean
Which seemed so lonely

The ocean
Seemed to understand
What it felt like to be
Left behind

The icy waves
Erased my steps
As if I was
Never there

The sun
Was setting
And only darkness
Accompanied me

The sand
Was rough
Bruising my
Bare feet

The houses
Back on shore
Looked so small
And dull

All of this
Was devastating
I wanted to comfort
This wide ocean

I opened
My arms
As if to say
I’m here

And when
I opened my eyes
To find myself alone
In this wide ocean
Which had seemed so lonely

The ocean
Seemed to understand
That he was filled
With life

The icy waves
Were erasing
My steps for a
New beginning

The sun
Would show itself
Bringing back the light
Very slowly

The sand
Felt softer
Hugging my
Bare feet

The houses
Back on shore
Would be filled with
Children soon

All of this
Was joyful
I wanted to hug
This wide ocean

I opened
My arms
As if to say
I’m here
