Updated on January 30, 2015

They return in tides

Every drop of memory

Moments once thought past

In the rivers of one’s life

From eternal sea of time

      The tides continue to ebb and flow, whispering their songs of what once was...

      Wow, I love this one. "They return in tides/every drop of memory" is so true, and becomes truer with the passing of the years. Thank you!

      mhatter99,

      Beautiful! Why do the painful tides seem to roll in stronger than the pleasant ones? Tell me the next time you're heading to the beach, I'll pack a bag :-)
