Waves Of Aches And Tears

Standing on the shore
listening to the sound of gentle waves
I look out to the misty horizon
and find comfort for my misty soul
filled with grief and longing for
a second chance at loving
an innocent, sweet life gone…

A chance to do better than I did
even though I know the second chance
will never come again, so I cry
the tears of longing knowing that
I have let go just a little bit more…

Hoping the deafening silence
of a sweet life gone will
become more quiet
and the ache in my heart
will anguish a little less
each breath will exhale
a peaceful acceptance
and these opaque eyes
will become translucent
to see life after loss
shine bright once more.
