The ocean pounding on the shore
Awakens with a crashing roar
Reminds me that you are no more

The same sea, friendlier by day
Absorbs my tears in salty spray
Its waves still carry you away

I came for healing, but I see
No tide can pull you back to me
You float in pools of memory

The waters rise, the waters fall
I summon you as seagulls call
Remember you, remember all

We are spending time with dear friends at their beach house, and early mornings have been a time for reflection. This poem opens a small window on grief, the sea, and the power of memory. I am finding the rhythm of grief/healing much like that of the ocean. It is good to be here.
