Ever felt like a ….

 Shore.

 Pebble

There comes the silent moment
I look back on the years,
The losses and the changes
That brought on all the tears.

My life’s a single pebble
The tide takes from the beach,
Lost among the breakers
The shore is out of reach.

I drift so far from others,
My hope is out of hand,
And like that single pebble
Washed to a distant land,
I’m tossed back from the ocean
And lost among the sand.

    A wonderful poem that depicts how we often feel of life – and captured in such poetic words.

    A delightful picture too.

  2. Just for complementing:

    My footprints on white sand
    Now i am already a sea
    As high as marble waters..
    O’ silent Mediterranean
    I don’t come back.. Never..Never..
    My steps never get away,
    No i never pass by..
    I go forward, but never return..

    By Me 🙂

    I really like this add on poem. I am really not poetic/creative but I do enjoy reading and hearing what others are inspired to speak about.
