Waves

I sailed on a sea of green 
I sailed on a sea of blue 
swam in the sea of hopeless 
was lost in the ocean of you 

I sailed on a sea of sacrifice 
where fear of failure abounds 
drifted on the sea of broken dreams 
as the tides of change howled 

I sailed on the sea of lonely 
I sailed on the sea of drowned 
swam an ocean of fallen tears 
when a wall of waves tore me down 

I sailed on the sea of loss 
where no hope would be found 
held fast in an ocean of your love 
on fair winds to firmer ground 

we sail on the sea of green 
we sail on the sea of blue 
eased in to the sea of hopeful 
was saved by the ocean of you

    The thing I like about this poem is the sense of melancholy. The images that come up to just from reading it too. Great work Marina!

    This is a beautiful well-written poem. I defy anyone not to be moved by the words.

    Words awaiting music maybe? I felt moved by the emotion of it as i imagined what it was all about.

    Marina writes such beautiful poems. They can be quite soulful but end with such positivism. A joy to read.
