Where the ocean meets land
A shoreline is created.
On stormy days...
The ocean waves - crash down hard
Washing away large pieces of the shoreline.
On windy days...
The ocean waves - one right after the other
Tumble onto the shore.
On calm days...
There is only a calmness to be seen and felt
With just maybe - the occasional ripple.
With each day... the tides come and
It has been said...
That the ocean can be viewed as life
And is sent - to test us.
And the Shoreline... represents the love
We have for one another.
And there are - as many shorelines
As there are people.
But the best that I have come to know
Is the one - I share with you.
