The gentle wave breezes through the shore
Washing many a legs, bringing in wet sand
Lending an alluring fragrance
Though always taking its way back
Making many long for its return.
One day it rushed on with fierce intensity
Moving on till it could not find its way back
Causing devastation it was unaware of.
It has taken with it the hopes of fishermen
The dreams of young and the joys of children.
It would take a long time
For the damage to be salvaged
And the trust to be regained.
