The Sea



I think I could really
Write if I was in
A Lighthouse looking
Out over the Sea.

The Ocean that is so
Vast, Fierce, and Wild
Becons me to watch as
The water rolls up in huge waves.

With nothing in sight, but
The Ocean wide
Watching the waves come
To rest upon the sand.

The raging of the Sea
Is like music to my ears
It gives us a Lullaby
We all really need.

Like the sloshing of water
Around the Docks, and Piers
Making us feel Alive,
And carefree.
