The shallow sea

He stood before the shallow sea 

And wondered what went wrong 

If only for the simple things 

Like solitude and song 


He stood before the shallow sea

And thought that he’d have plenty 

But then desire came along 

And ‘fore he knew he’d spent it 


The window opened once again 

The sunshine danced along 

He looked below to roses bloomed 

and soon he saw a throng


The throng of roses flowered now - 

Enact it if you could 

The petals were a mass of red 

The scent well understood 


He knew his acts were his alone 

And within his own belief 

A second chance had welcomed him 

'twas more than just relief
