being carried

it went like this...
in my head and heart

i said go ahead
without me
do what you want
it's not for me
don't waste my time

an unspoken plea
"help me get over this"
in my head and heart
i wanted to heal

a musical message
left on my phone
from her
Be Still My Soul
and i was

so, off to show up
not reluctant

then it happened
my head and heart
again, and random
but it never is
i walked into a room
"and a little child shall lead them"
this same one who sent the song
music subtle in our space

Be Still My Soul
and we were
moved, in awe

being carried
seeing the wide expanse
a repeated confirmation
He knows
He always cares

a personal witness
"the Lord is on thy side"

to the sea

I wish I knew the artist whose heart must share my love.
Kids, ocean, pails of sand, sea creatures, the smell ...

Soon I will be there
Embracing those waves as they crash over me
Soon I will feel alive like nothing else can do for me
quite the same way
Soon my children and theirs will share this love
my longing will be satisfied.

Finally my ears will hear waves
and I will be the last to leave my love
each day I am there.
