The Longing

Soft breezes of early morning 

wash over me like a warm embrace. 

My memory is awakened, longing 

for the alluring scent of ocean air. 

I ache for gentle sea breezes casting their soft caresses. 

I yearn to feel the sand 

under my feet. 

I long for the peacefulness 

of my old friend, the sea.
