Vast and overwhelming
You take my breath away
I wonder at your majesty
In your realm I yearn to stay
A heartbeat ceaseless rhythm
You dance in constant sway
Waves crush upon unending shore
Then retreat yonder ,far away
Did you know I love your smell and sound?
As waves splash upon my naked feet
See me sink into your white fine sands
Battling tides-that’s no mean feat!
There is no greater feeling
Than floating in your midst
Riding boisterous waves of fury
With sense of pure ,great bliss
Your mirror life’s great mysteries
Your wonders never cease
One moment calm and tempered
Then,fierce-raging like a beast
Your waters are galaxy,
Such creatures live within
Flora flourish in your realistic
Fauna thrive midst watery din
Perhaps I was born to be a sailor
To ride your waves each day!
Oh! Such it seems was not be be
It’s a lifetime ,held at bay
Yet,would that I could settle
Somewhere close,upon your shore.
And there I yearn to live my life,
Until it be no more
And so final farewell,
My simple reverie
Is of ashes shorn into your well…
That is enough for me
And you simply carry on
Ceaseless rhythm,constant sway,
Lord, thank you for such majesty,
May we protect land and ocean,I pray.
