Far Horizon

How many times …

Have I stood here
Alone upon a sandy shore
Watching the far horizon
Beyond an endless sea

How many times …

Have the waves rushed over me
Angry breakers pounding my heart
Yet I stand.
I withstand
Watching the far horizon
Beyond an endless sea

For life, in her wisdom teaches
Look way beyond the far horizon
Know the silent secrets of the sea

The waves that come rushing in
Can try but will never break me
For they have no choice but recede
To the far horizon
On the ebb tide
Of an endless sea
