you wander

through my mind

leaving smiles

with your footprints

I am the liquid depths
of the sea

gracefully dancing upon your shore

taking pieces of you
with me as I recede

yet I will always return to you

bringing treasures from
the secret world

really old poem I found as I flipped through  some old journals of mine. Growing up by the ocean, I remember sitting on the edge of the world, staring out into the mysterious expanse of the sea and getting lost in the marvel of what it might hold.  Now older and land locked I long to be by my beloved ocean again.
