How many times have I walked barefoot,

On the beach near mom oceans waters,

Speaking aloud but only she can hear,

Telling her of my pain & fear…


Listening hard to receive her reply,

Taking away my pain, quelling my fear,

Listening as well to what brings to her a tear,

I as well finding it hard not to cry…


She reminds me of my childhood,

Of the days gone by & bygone years,

For us both, mom ocean & I were quite good,

Memories of us both together, those are the times we strongly revere…

For some one that also goes on long walks on the empty beach, I understand what you try to convey, because only those that know raw solitude can write a poem like you wrote above.
Thank for sharing.
