The Ebb and Flow of life
The Ebb and Flow of Life
Waves washing in and out
emotions crashing all around
this torrent of rain will eventually wash over every heartbeat
In the distance there is the sound of thunder
fear startles and seizes the heart
breath is forced from lungs that feel paralyzed
overflowing the eyes as quickly as the ocean overtakes the sand
blinded by uncertainty
the sand shifting underfoot
and yet each moment standing there, holds a promise
Just beyond what can be seen or heard
the sun is rising
just past the rain and mist
the veil separates and light floods the space
The sun is coming
a lone heartbeat pounds out a new song
to the rhythm of the crashing waves
tears are dried, rain begins to cease and hope has won.
the darkness must surrender to the brightness of dawn.
