A true mate in the sea


The symphony of sea waves
Pacified her weary soul;
But as her tears 
Escaped in the sea,
The waves sang
A melancholic lullaby.

Forsaken by all
She found a true mate
In the sea;
Who reciprocated
Her companionship instantly
Through its endless waves.

Sitting by the shore
She kept narrating her story
And looked for an answer;
There were none
Apart from the
Murmuring sound of the waves.

Her sad, sullen face
Carried a serene hue
As she deciphered the message;
RISE AFTER FALL
NEVER GIVE IT UP
TILL YOU HAVE IT ALL!

  12. Don't know...

    It reminded me somehow of William Wordsworth and his famous 'The woods are lovely dark and deep... '

    You are too good, Purba! I just was engrossed in the flow of the words.

    I can only complement you in the best possible way!

    Wish, I'd have written it! :)
