Walking away from the ocean

After a time so long,
In surprises oblong;
I am walking along,
The shores I used to throng,
Of the ocean I pined to belong.

The ocean of memories is calm
And the waves fragile;
As I turn back with a smile,
I realise living there was so much futile.

The waves used to crash
At the shores to take me away;
And I surrendered to the gash,
Until I was hit with a splash
To drift me away,keeping wounds at bay.

I walk and the waves recede under,
As I watch them with pride and splendour;
I know I won't leave sandmarks either,
Because the ocean will drown all the dither.
