I’ve had this dream that comes and goes
From fingertips to tippytoes
Yet what it means none but God knows.
When I was small and loved to play
I’d splash in water all the day
Closeby the ocean or the bay.
I’ve spent my life beside the sea
It’s where I feel both safe and free
And where my ashes placed will be.
In sleep I hear the ocean’s roar
I sense the gulls that o’erhead soar
And pray that I still hug God’s shore !
