The Call of the Sea

By Guido Montgomery

The sea is calling, I know what to do:
Go to her and give her my all.
For she is so loving, faithful and true,
I trust her to cherish my soul.

I thus go forth from suffering and pain,
Let go of anger and grief.
Memories and dreams soon quit my worn brain
As I swim through the waves toward peace.

No more do I need to rehearse who to be,
What to think, how to feel, what to say.
As future and past wash away in the sea,
Here now I realize the way.

I relinquish desire, attachments and strife.
To the swell of the sea I offer my life.
