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 beach
     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 is 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.
