Listening to every heart
Return & Leave
When I see you coming towards me,
my mind, again, envisions the sea.
As you come towards me even more,
so does the wave to the shore.
You become larger, as does the wave,
mounting higher and higher, as does the wave.
You pass me again, you pass me once more,
the wave breaks, crashes, and leaves my shore.
Some day you will finally look at me,
and from my mind will leave the sea.
With you, Iíll forget the lore,
of the wave coming, and leaving my shore.

Look, then, into thine heart, and write ~~~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
