Cleansing Waters

Is the salt from my tears the same as the salt of the
   sea?
Is the power of forgiveness as vast as the
   ocean?
Washing sounds from the
   current
cleanse my memories. Gentleness of the
   waves
caress my soul as
   foam
touches the
   shore.
            That’s what moving on looks like.
