She was the dark during midnight
And the light before dawn
The deep breath before a secret
And the sigh after it’s gone
She was crashing ocean waves
As they came and breached the shore
And a tiny little river
Knowing it could be much more.
She was the smell of rain in the spring
And the ashes in the air
She was laughter at midnight
And the sound of deep despair
She was howling winds by the coast
As they swept throughout the beach
And a breath in winter weather
As you search for what you seek.
