See the Sea

I see the sea come in
and go out

Like clockwork.
Literally.

Yet, each time the tide rises
I foolishly believe
I will always have water
in which to wet my toes.

And when it retreats
I despair
and believe I will never
see
it
again.

Then the moon says differently
and the cycle continues
as it always has.

When will I see the sea
for what it is
and what it will always be?
