The Waves


As I stand silently on the sands of a beach,

Overlooking the vast expanse of the sea;

The cool breeze brushing against my cheeks,

I am filled with a feeling of serenity;

As the waves play around my feet,tugging me inside,

I feel they are trying to tell me something;

And then I realize, that the waves that hit the sand,

Are very similar to the  capricious days of my life;

Some of them hug my ankles,

And I sense the pleasure as it tickles;

Some of them hit me in subtle anger,

Taking my breath away just as I recover;

Some of them roar at me vigorously

And all I can do is roar back joyously;

Some of them bring along a beautiful shell

As if to make sure I have a story to tell;

Some of them drag me into the sand,

Deeper and deeper till I need a helping hand;

Some of them playfully push me on to the shore

And my senses scream ‘ Give me some more”!

The waves hit the sand quite tirelessly

And so do my days come and go meticulously;

I love to ebb and surge with it  fervently,

As I watch the waves of my days admiringly!
