Stormy Nights


On stormy winter nights or days
When behind a sooty cloud the sun stays
Pick a pen and paper,
And before the rough sea
Sit with closed eyes
And a shy smile on the face!
Let the breeze flirt with your cheeks
And blow any burden and care away.
And then, open your heart to receive
The most beautiful meanings ever;
For waves always wash messages up
Of lovers whose hands are apart
And lip to lip their love cannot murmur
And their souls yearn for just a whisper.
There you can learn
How love can raise people to eternity,
As it is the only moving lesson
Through your whole life
That teaches your heart how to beat justly.

    By the sea, we forget to count our cares...I love just minutes from the majestic Atlantic Ocean...and other I find solace that is immeasurable...beautiful and all mine....You have captured the elegance the sea stroking the shore. PEACE (Report) Reply
