a place to remove myself
from everything I cannot control.
under the footprints of lovers
hand in hand.
Footprints washed away
by the ever rolling tide.
I feel so small when standing at the brink of a wave.
Just gazing out into the vast abundance of life barreling in.
I am bigger than the ocean
stronger than any wave.
I am not limited to a high tide
nor am I required to fall to the lowest I can go.
I'm as ever changing as the sand that shifts and molds
under my feet
as I walk with you
along the boundary of sand and water,
stability and freedom.
