The Cleansing Ocean Waves

Walking reverently along the seashore
Anytime the waves can deal a crushing blow
Absorbing me into its vast open body
Returning me to the ebb and flow of life
To watch the sunset until the next dawn

Today the waves choose not to take me
Instead it gently caresses my tired feet
Moving the sand back and forth with the tide
As I let go of troubles to be washed clean
Flowing back to my mind as tranquil waters

I leave the seashore light as a feather
The ocean lifted my burdens and set me free
My heart stays behind so I will return
The next time my soul searches for peace
I’ll be back to the cleansing ocean waves
