A Visit With an Old Friend

The morning sun breaks the horizon
To greet me with hello
Displaying its awesome beauty
On the shimmering sea below

We like to sit and quietly watch
The tide come slowly in
Wonder about each crashing wave
And where the salty sea has been

Each morning we stroll the sandy beach
Fresh brewed coffee in hand
Serenaded by waddling gulls
Leaving our footprints in the sand

We search for treasures left on the beach
Given up by the sea
Little shells and smooth round stones
Worth a fortune to you and me

Though our time here is almost over
We’re sad to see it end
But always leave with the feeling
That we have spent our time with a friend (sea)
