Contemplation of the Ocean – A Poem


Staring at the ocean

I feel a calm sensation

A release from life’s commotion

A wave of deep elation


How blissful are these moments?

When turmoil’s and tempests cease

to be, replaced by condolence

of times we spent at peace.


I think of our lives together

Our tandem beating hearts

Each second was perfect pleasure.

Yet alas our love departs.


All things must have their time

Here today and gone tomorrow

Even moments so sublime

Must die, in endless ebb and flow.


I feel a sense of deep elation

In release from life’s commotion

A wave of calm sensation

As I stare out at the ocean.

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.
