The gentle wave breezes through the shore

Washing many a legs, bringing in wet sand

Lending an alluring fragrance

Though always taking its way back

Making many long for its return.

One day it rushed on with fierce intensity

Moving on till it could not find its way back

Causing devastation it was unaware of.

It has taken with it the hopes of fishermen

The dreams of young and the joys of children.

It would take a long time

For the damage to be salvaged

And the trust to be regained.
