Take me with you, waves of surrender, waves of grace.
Let me rise and fall with dignity.
Let me know no defeat.
Let me feel it rising, the strength inside, as I pick myself off the floor.
Give me your hand, water. Can't grasp you. Whisper me your secrets.
When we retreat in life, let us remember, all tides pull back.
There is no shame.
We pull back, reconnect, rise again.
Nothing stays still.
Back, forwards, rise, fall.
The dance of life.
To what purpose we might ask?
Ask the Oceans. I feel she knows.
