I So Wish

I went to the Ocean for my birthday.
I'm getting so old that it takes what seems
 like a whole army to get me there.
Once I did get to the shore, this is who met me.
Fog was all around but I swam
to the sounds of the shore.
There I found sandpipers and a gull.
Just looking at the wonders of the sea.
I had a marvelous time.
Could have been there forever.
Wish I could be.
Back to my normal life which isn't really normal.
Thank God for photos to remind me
 of what means the most to be.
My freedom.
The part of me that still remains.
My childhood days of running the beach.
I so wish I could be there now.
