Friends

Like the incoming tide,
You spread over the shore
Bringing gifts from the sea.
But as for me, no gift you bring
Is greater than thee.

It was not a rock
Upon which your waves broke.
They broke upon my heart.

I’ve rejoiced in your surf,
So bubbly, so light, so strong.
The coolness of your depths
Has set me free from the heat
Of days well worn.

Being drawn by the Spirit
Who guides you,
You must go as you have come–
Inevitable as the setting sun.

I’ll share your gifts with others.
I know that they’ll go far.
I’ll watch the tides forever,
And wonder how you are.

O, Spirit, make us one
So together we will be
No matter where we go,
Friends throughout eternity.
