They leave marks,
have you noticed?
Thin lines on sand
separating wet from dry.

They break
have you noticed?
rolling from horizon to shore
to rise and roar
to fall and fell.

They come and go
have you noticed?
They give and take
mimicking life
laughing all the way
to world's end
and back.

This was no wave
like other waves
no give but for eternal verities
but lots of take
take away
burden and memory
but for those who lost
left behind
with scattered shards
of lives un-lived
that cut
even now
ten years later.
