The Sea Has Been Calling Me - Poem by Elisabeth Ouweneel

The sea has been calling me
asking me to leave the shore
to let it all just be
there's nothing I want more

She makes me forget my sorrow
when diving under her waves
I don't think about tomorrow
and it's my sanity she saves

She washes all the bad away
till there's no more left inside
tells me that the new day
will not make me want to hide

I stay with her till my mind is clear
and I feel no more pain
when there's nothing left to fear
But life itself to gain

I no longer want to run
and feel completely free
The sea sends me up towards the sun
I'm grateful that again I can see
