Staring out over the horizon 

my mind wanders.

As a heaviness bears down on me

a longing over takes me.

A feeling so strong 

it takes my breath away.

My eyes well up with tears

and, overcome with emotion, they gently fall.

I tell myself its only the wind

blowing in from the sea.

A longing over takes me

as I stare out over the horizon

  1. What is it your heart is yearning for ? Is the sea/your soul calling you – a longing for home. Mum used to talk about that at times. An inner restlessness. Stay well my friend xoxo
