Farewell, My Sister

I saw the waves, the line of water,

Nearing the shores, small in the distance,

Majestic in pose, sublime in stature,

That expanse of dusty cyan,

In the light of a brilliant afternoon sky,

And as the ocean beckons,

I find myself drawn into the narrative,

Steadfast and Sure,

Taking that step into the frontier,

Where light is forever shining,

A beacon in the darkest of nights.
