The waves are crashing at the shore.

The sun is setting like a pro.

But my life is not at all what I thought.

It took me by surprise.

The depths were one of a kind.

It drew me in and spit me out.

And I couldn’t come around.

But we are not here to see the sun set.

And walk by the waves.

But to crash with them as they crash

And to rise like the sun.

The crashing and the rising is what we are here to do.

And maybe catch a few moments to breathe through.

I know; I know it’s not fair.

And I can see that you don’t want to be there.

But here’s what I know for sure.

Something deep inside is getting you through.

It’s your spirit. Your soul.

Your fountain of love.

You are built this way.

So you can find your way.

Through the waves and the hurt.
The sun will always rise in the end.

You might not have always known this.

But ‘this’ has always known you.

Here’s to the you after all the waves.

And the life you lived in all the ways.

You are my hero, my song.

My inspiration, to keep on.

Thank you for your rises.

You have been full of surprises.

One day the sun will set and you will be smiling on the deck.

Remembering all of life’s disguises.

Until then hang with the waves and smile at all their rage.

You are the child of God.

After all.

With waves and stuff,
