I went to the water tonight I sat there and I cried. I cried like the lost child I felt I was, like my children would have if I had not lost them so soon. I sobbed and I screamed into the night til I silently watched my tears become one with the salty ocean. I walked to the shore where the waves crashed against my feet taking a little more of me with each blow. I laid there and let the waves wash over me cleansing my body, my heart, my soul from all the hurt, the pain, the doubt, the rejection, the lost and humiliation. God is by the water and there is where we talk. I told him everything he already knows, I cried to him for change. Suddenly all stood still and the earth fell silent. My quiet heart began to beat a little louder and I realized I am that change. I am that love, that faith, I am with God and I have all I need. I let him it take it all away that night and there is where I left it, down by the water. But I'm sure I will revisit, I always do.
