Longing for Home


She yearned for the sea

Yet all she can glimpse is the hot sandy dunes of the desert



Plains stretched miles into the horizon

Her heart belonged to the ocean

Yet here she was, so far away from home

Living another man’s dream

In isolation and desolation

Longing for the crystal blue waters that she called home

A carefree spirit, born to be wild

Like the dolphins of the south seas

Breaking waves in the evening light

Underneath the Southern Cross

Is a place existing only as a memory
