The Waves Along The Shore
I walked and left footprints along the shore
But the waves washed away the footprints I made before
My hands were cold, my heart was numb
I didn’t want to feel anything anymore.
But as I hear the roaring sounds of the sea
I can feel the love and anger deep within me
The love I thought would never end
When I met you when I was on a bend.
I wondered if you’ll feel the same…
A love that will stay till the end
I tried to forget the little anger I felt
Coz I know you’ve said those things you’ve never meant
You are mixed up like what you said
And I am too, when I answered
As days go by, I learned to love you more
And I was afraid what will happen….
Like what love did before
But I set aside those fears coz I know
That maybe one day… you’ll love me more.
As I strolled back to the shore I have been
I felt a big difference from within
You were gentle touching the sand
To let me make my footprints back again.
The wind gently touched my face
And silently whispered…..
“ Honey, you have to face….
the truth and reality you have to embrace.”
Soft and hard sand I stepped on
Wondering what went wrong
You made them weird and unsightly….
All the way long.
As the days go by and the time went on
I walked back to the shore where I think I belong
To feel the breeze, to hear the sounds
The ones you made across the sand.
You are so calm, so serene
As if there’s no obstacles in between
You gently swept the sand
To make a beautiful and smooth land.
You are the waves…..
I am the sand…..
