Sea Glass in Time

Sea glass in time,
I hold in my hand.
A creation by sand.
A glass, sand glass,
Of such light mass.

It’s wrapped in jewelry twine,
Held down by a rosy stone and pearl that shine,
Next to a green quartz and a locket-two hearts, yours and mine.
It does jingle, a slight ringle-
Would it were it single?

My problems I’ve had, were quite sad.
Made me mad and I was bad.
Hurt it cut me,
A glass broken I could see.

Over time that broken glass,
Did change into a different class.
Grains that hit it,
Irritate and tumbled a bit…
Until it changed,
Broken glass to a precious range.

A sea glass, jewel so rare,
Beyond compare…
Years in the making,
I will be taking.

Lessons learned
From which I’ve earned.
How to love,
Myself and you, and the One above.
How to love,
Myself and you-but most above.

Never to run away,
Or even sway,
To the problems today,
That may come my way.

I’ve finally become a sea glass
Like you, my friends, so beauteous, with so much class!
Thank you, now I can fly,
not just drift on by.

I've emerged, a butterfly,
with wings so strong, I can fly.
With your help and the One above,
had a little shove...

Now I'm soaring,
winds 'round me roaring.
Thank you for everything,
now I can sing.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I dedicate this poem to two friends that have helped me to see myself. I thought I was a broken glass, but they helped me see and become a beautiful sea glass. We've ridden strong waves together these past months and they never gave up but believed in me. I will love both of them always because they are true friends that loved me enough to let me be who I was. I will not run away anymore, but face my problems headlong. I've learned how to love, myself and others. Thank you again to my two beautiful friends! ! !

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
