Everyday millions of people come to me
Some to laze
Some to gaze into my seamless horizon
To admire my varied shades of Blue
Or to soak their tired feet in my refreshing saltiness
Others come to drown away their overbearing sadness
Or relive good ones.
To some, I am a distance that separates
To others a means of reaching their loved ones
In my fold live millions of creatures… impossible colours…unending life…
I hide treasures yet undiscovered, possibilities infinite
I am a means of livelihood , a giver, a ‘bestower’, a leaser of Life
And also.. .
A taker, an angry monster, a destroyer, ’causer’ of strife..
I am a mood changer
I absorb what you feel
With my soothing murmurs
I ease all your pain
Take in your sorrows, your joys, your hurts and tears
To who do I turn – when I need release?
Ever wondered if there is something I lost?
Someone I seek?
That I may have my own secrets to keep
