The waves are rolling gently to the shore
With sunlight sparkling deep within the swells
I look beneath the waves that came before
To see the seaside strewn with shattered shells
As beautiful as ever since its dawn
It shines with every iridescent hue
The presence of a life inside now gone
A shell unfilled--I'll take it home for you
This ragged elegance held in my hand
Is dropped in pained remembrance of your soul
And now lies cracked and empty in the sand
...For who am I to try and make you whole?
The hollow has devoured every part
Of something that was once alive--your heart.
