I close my eyes and feel the closeness of the waves;
they pass by me like a memory not yet made.
I feel the breeze getting stronger;
I feel it piercing through my skin.
It is a new kind of rejuvenation;
it is in some ways enticing.
Nothing can compare to this bliss
that I see even when I am not dreaming.
I touch the sand and be one with what I lost;
the water washes over all my worries.
How can you not fall in love here?
How can you want to leave?
I know I’ll have to go home someday but for now,
this paradise is all I need.
