Light on the Ocean

Whenever I am meant to ebb

it would seem as though I flow.

My retreat from the shore

helps me achieve the final blow.

The calm waters below

accentuate the ever rising wave

that creates turmoil on the surface

and deep down, reveals the brave.

I fight the waters in order to save

all that I know and who I am

but the higher the water rises,

the less it seems I give a damn.

And the waves, upon my head slam

and I close my eyes and drift

until a light on the ocean I spot

and with you, my spirits lift.
