The Waves

by Tzvia Hindel

The waves go out,
The waves come in,
Like candle light that's dwindling...
Ages pass and bones grow thin,
But the old man's smile is still welcoming.

And as I sit down by the shore,
I can sense that many have come before;
Their whispers ride upon the winds,
Ever so slightly saccharine.
