The Ocean

The Sounds of the Oceans are like friends to me,
They make life easier and help me to see.
That Life can be Peaceful and yet full of strife,
The Waves can be soft or Cut like a knife.

You need friends to help you swim,
To struggle alone or rely on them.
Family also can help you move through the sea,
And you can't help but be.
Grateful to all who love you for you,
They are always there to see you through.

God rules the ocean and all the sounds,
So in Him we must be found.
Trusting in Him to carry us through,
The waves of the ocean and all that is blue.
