'Splashing in Memories'

Have you ever sat on the beach
     and tried to count the waves
And thought about their enormous strength
     and how they never really go away
Rolling, tumbling upon the sandy beaches
     with only a moment to stay
Bowing down underneath your feet
     and slowly creeping away
Then coming back with a mighty thrush
     splashing water into your face
Have you ever sat on the beach
     and tried to count the waves
Have you ever tried to count
     the many memories of your life
One living vividly within your mind
     another so far away it's impossible to find
What if you could mingle all your memories into one
     and know the better memories of life would overcome
The strife, the pain, the sorrow, the rain
     would all soon be dried up
By the sunshine in your heart
     which is as solid as a coconut
Memories in your mind are like waves
     Splashed upon the earth
Some treat them with indifference
     while others seek their birth
