Oh, my love, do you not know how much I miss you? I gaze longingly upon your portrait painted in vibrant hues of turquoise, emerald, and gold. I miss our sweet times together. In my mind I can hear the melodic sound of your voice singing songs of praise and adoration. Oh how I crave being in your embrace. I wish to look deep into your liquid sapphire eyes and feel the gentle breeze of your piquant breath upon my face. Oh, my love, I yearn for the time when we are free to be together once again. For now distance keeps us apart, but I shall keep on dreaming of the day we are reunited.
Ahh, my love, together at last! The balmy breezes caress my face, and the comforting warmth of the afternoon sun bathes me in reverent awe. I love basking in the embrace of your grandeur. The spiritual awareness of being in this open-air cathedral sends chills throughout my body.
How at peace I feel, reflecting on the ebb and flow of your sizzling breakers breaching the sandy shore. Oh, how I love this place; listening to your lyrical waves crashing against craggy rocks fills my soul with joy. Your gentle touch of foamy wavelets swirling around my ankles, mingled with your salty fragrance, permeates my soul, creating precious remembrances for when we are no longer together.
Oh, majestic sea, your glistening shore, how wondrous you are, my love! You have been created by the Most High God, and it is here that I sense an understanding of His awesome Glory. I know ours is an unrequited love, but God’s love is fulfilling. It is my love for God that I hold dear. The times spent here with you, worshipping my Lord, make this a Holy place.
The time has come when we must part. Worship is less poignant when away from your presence, but each day we are apart my love for you, the seashore, grows stronger. I have hidden you in my heart, cherished memories of your embracing presence, and my soul anticipates when next we join together in a joyful duet of worship to our almighty God.
