thoughts from my mind to yours

Longing

You are like the spec of sand,

carried away by the wind…

far, far, far, away from the land,

where you had always been.

 

Lost with the sky

you wonder why

the world passes by you,

as you daydream on foreign sand,

longing for another blue…

 

Enchanted waves washes your mind

as you try to find

that forgotten piece of the ocean

the answer to all your questions

lingering with your tears…

and suddenly

you have nothing to fear

for the world is your ocean

and your ocean is the world’s

and as you travel by

floating in the sky

you smile

for it’s worthwhile

to long for home

and to find home

in your longing.

Longing

You are like the spec of sand,

carried away by the wind…

far, far, far, away from the land,

where you had always been.

Lost with the sky

you wonder why

the world passes by you

as you daydream

longing for another blue

washing over your grey mind

as you try to find

that forgotten piece of the ocean

lingering with your tears…

and suddenly

you have nothing to fear

for the world is your ocean

and your ocean is the world’s

and as you travel by

floating in the sky

you smile

for it’s worthwhile

to long for home

and to find home

in your longing.

Home

I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night…

 

For they hold the stories,

my grandma told me,

the walks on the beach,

with the family,

and the moment,

when my heart,

first took flight.

 

I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night…

 

For when I lose sight,

of where I am,

they comfort me,

like they comforted my ancestors,

eons before I was born,

guiding them with light.

 

I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night…

 

For their infinite beauty,

keeps me grounded,

no matter how high I fly,

reminding me who I am,

and where I come from,

as I sail across the sky.

 

I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night.
