When Oceans Flow….Tears Follow--By Maurice J. Reynolds--United States

When Oceans Flow….Tears Follow

Silence as I watch the ocean still
The sun sets, bringing joy
Gentle winds make the waters sway
Peace in a peace-less world
Roaring waves, yet still, they are so calm
The sound of the swaying water is music to my ears
Tranquility and peace to my heart
A beautiful sight that takes my breath away
Stirring emotions I’ve never felt before
The peace, the grace, the majesty, the essence
Release my joy….let my tears flow
A home away from home
Inhale peace, exhale joy
When oceans flow….tears follow
