Riding Waves

Message in a bottle
But it seems to be broke
Water seeping in
The lines all blurred
From the lost and roaming
Fingers outstretched
Hoping to touch someone
A snafu sent the course wrong
Now the journey
Is retracing yesterday’s steps
Swimming against the tide
To find that moment
When it all went sideways
But what is the point
You can’t change that
No spinning the clock back
Look at the sun
Shining down on you today
The breeze off the sea
Blowing the sand from your feet
Lift them and move forward
No SOS needed
The tide is waiting
To continue the adventure
Jump in
