As the night sky filters into the background

Allowing the warm sun to shine on the ocean waves

The reflection from the sun shimmers into the depths below

And the water above glistens like a mirror

Projecting the peace within the calm waters


The horizon seems never ending

A line that moves with every passing wave

From every angle it looks different

It is a feature on the ocean

Like a compass guiding the way home

A symbol of hope at the darkest of times


As the morning sun awakes

Shining a light for today

Its presence and warmth surrounds the empty ocean

I know that I am not alone
