patience and pain

There is laughter in this sand 

It has seen the growing steps of my feet and my hands 

Many times 

Many years

There is hope in this sea breeze

Emotions crashing 

Almost bringing me to my knees 

The intense feeling of bittersweet

There is healing in these waters 

Waves of patience and pain

I have seen this beach many times 

It has never seen me so whole

This is new sand beneath my toes

This is fresh water on my face

This is familiar but...I am the new place 

I have changed but you have not 

It’s so warm to see you again

You have seen me young and you have seen me grow

This is the beach I will always know 

Thank you for the times you have given me

Thank you for the memories

Thank you for the healing 

This is such an overwhelming feeling

To walk on this shore again

A whole new me

I am happy to show you I’m free

Of what used to be, me.
