Where I’m At Rest

Where the sand touches the sea
Where the breeze runs free
Where there’s not a cloud in the sky
And waves lap a calming lullaby
Where you collect shells and sort them
And sip drinks with pineapple garnish
Where little children go off to swim
And the smoke of man does little to tarnish
Where evening skies are purple, blue, gray
And twilight invites the young and restless
Where I’d like to go with you one day
To be young, free, and forget our messes
When I feel down, I think of the warm sun
Sweating away my darkest nights
The evil swelters in the presence of light
It cannot dwell in me, it is undone
When I feel alone, I think of your smile
Delighting my pen, rejuvenating glory
A river flowing, I write as the Nile
The ending to the beginning of our new story
Where the sun sets, and our eyes close
Time rolls back, there’s nothing left
I will say of your love I was proud to know
Now I can be at peace, and finally rest

  1. This touched me Devereaux. A few months before my first wife passed away we spent two weeks in a place like this on the Florida Keys. And when I feel alone I think of her smile in the warmth of the sun. Thank you for this my friend. ☺❤
