An Ocean of Remembrance

Poetry By: Sara Battaglia

The second poem in the Elemental poems collection I am working on. Here, water symbolizes reflecting on memories, moving on, cleansing, healing, and renewal.

And so like an evening down by the beach

I have watched the frigid waves of love

Flow on to someone elseā€¦

Built up with strength and passion

Only to crash against the rocky shore

To disappear forevermore.

But do my eyes gaze with content,

Or is there something more I feel?

Could it possibly be regret,

For the ones whose future I have sealed?

I don't yet understand

The feelings that I get

Why I cannot comprehend

This aching in my heart

And why I cannot seem to control

The thoughts of a lost part

I kept locked inside my soul.

But I have come so hopelessly to realize

That memories can be tossed away

Into the ocean

Carried far to start a new beginning

By the waves that travel freely

Forever in a perpetual motion.
