And so like an evening down by the beach
I have watched the frigid waves of love
Flow on to someone else…
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.
