To Find Me

in a car like yours
drove slowly by,
and for a moment,
I thought you’d come
to the edge of the ocean
to find me.

He drove by
without stopping.

And I admit,
for a moment?
It slowed me down.

I noticed how edgy
my heart was
from the idea
that you might come
to find me.

I noticed how saddened
my heart was
from realizing
you’d never come
to find me.

But then,
I drove that thought away
and turned back
to the edge of the ocean
because I am here
to find me.

      Thank you. 🙂 I especially like the picture now that I’m getting to see it on my computer instead of my phone.
