When life casts its gray shadows
and the tests have been too much to take
When my heart has been broken once again
and my dreams have faded into nothingness
the white sands of the beach is where I go.
Running past sand castles
and the hidden treasures the sand may hold
running past lovers basking in the warmth
of the eternal sun -
I reach for the cool embrace of
the ocean's wave.
Together we dance to the ebb and flow
of the tide of life
we stand unafraid.
In the silence of the distance the ocean's
strength speaks to me
enveloping my soul with
the gift of peace it came to find.
