I came from the sea
To wrap my arms around this lowly earth
Made smooth by the waves of my haven.
I find it comforting
To lie here with it in the sun,
Bathing, till we can both meld
That one day, on bent knee
Will be offered to her
Whom, time has set in its dial
To find when all hands turn to twelve
I come from the sea
For the children looking for sea shells
To amaze and enchant them
To tell them, that I knew their mother
Who took a predilection to me;
And wore me close to her heart
Entwined me, with gold chains.
I’ll tell them her story
Started with salt water tears
Which created whitecaps in my demesne
Whom I had to ride for I was never one to yield.
