The Beach is Home

I live a few miles from the ocean, with my husband and our 3 boys. I always make an effort to spread kindness and light wherever I go.

The beach is my peace. My comfort. My safe place. I lived away from the ocean for a couple years as a kid and will never leave again. No matter how bad I feel or what I'm going through, the ocean can bring me an amazing amount of peace and calm...even if it's only temporary.

I feel the sand between my toes

And listen as the warm breeze blows

I see the shells through all the foam

Now I know that I am home

The waves are crashing on the beach

The sun is just within my reach

I watch the seagulls as they roam

Now I know that I am home

I feel the sun embracing me

I rock to the rhythm of the sea

I notice how much the sky has grown

No I know that I am home

I smell the salt in the air

And feel the wind blow my hair

I sit and gaze at this beach biome

Now I know that I am home

I taste the ocean on my tongue

I wish the day had just begun

Now I feel so alone

Because I have to leave my home
