my board moves slowly

the tide is weak

i paddle far to catch the wave

it is small

and so am i

the waters are still

so i sit on my board a stare

at the endless waters

waiting for that wave

to spring on the board and finally feel

the motion of the ocean from hair to heel

the waters, the wave, they claim it heals

 an illness that has tormented me years

the wave caused by falling tears

as they fall down my cliff cheek

i could almost hear my mind speak

consoling me, as if to be brave

“paddle no more and ride the wave”
