The Wave

Updated on February 5, 2013

Standing still, I wait here

For a wave to wash over me

Expecting to be pulled under

And swept beneath the sea

From ashore I hear the seashells

Whispering my name

Hand on my brow to shade the sun

I seek clouds full of rain

Rays of warmth caress me

A slight breeze across my skin

I expect thunder and lightning to crash

When will the storm begin

No tears of God have fallen

No high tide, no wind, no rain

Although the sea is capable

I've been given sunlit days again

      Jamie, I stumbled into this web site looking for your sister's address. Lo and Behold! Your poem "The Wave" -- it is BEAUTIFUL, sensitive, and sweet. I hope all is well with you now -- I feel terrible learning how difficult your life was for you for a long time. I wish I could have helped. But you did it! Love, Your Aunt Karen. I'm not sure I can comment without signing up, but here goes . . .

      MissJamie- I came and read your Hubs on Narcissism .. though my situation is different as I am the daughter of one . . and I have a daughter that I may have passed some of it on to . . Yes, yes I have Hubs to come . .I am just trying to get the strength to hit "submit" . . and then I came upon "The Wave" and it is beautiful and inspiring and so many other things .. and may just be what I am needing today to do what I need to do . THANKYOU!
