The Waves - Poem by AHO Speaks

The waves come in one at a time
Lifting themselves up; as tho pushed from behind
Some large and some small
Just like people trying to be so very tall.

One after another they come rolling along
Each one hitting the beach with their very own song
No matter their size they all leave the same thing
A beautiful white froth to the land they bring.

Today the ocean is so calm and placid as a lake it should be
Just think for a moment; God made it for just you and me
People walking along in the early morning sun
The young and the old, enjoying what was made by the one.

Dare I not believe that God created such a thing
Would not into my life a little love it would bring
As the birds glide along the top of the waves
It seems to say; 'It is you whom I love and save'.

If I hold the ocean in the cup of my hand
So I control it so it does not destroy the land
You are the ones I love and call my dears
So I enfold you in my arms and allay your fears.

Love one another; as I love you
Then my children you will see, such a beautiful view.
