Once of the Sea
I climb the rocks along the beach,
Just beyond the wild waves reach.
I sit and stare out at the sea.
Its beauty hypnotizes me!
The bond between us is quite real.
There is a kinship here, I feel.
The salty tears I've shed may be
Because I once, was of the sea!
In some forgotten, distant past,
Before my lot in life was cast,
But still I feel those ties today.
Whenever I can get away,
I go to where I feel complete,
With green sea water, at my feet!
