Tidal Waves

How can you measure
The depth of one’s sorrow
And the height of one’s joy
When they clash
A safety net for the falling
Gravity for the euphoric
Together bring balance
Rhythmic breathing returns
With every wave
Angels stand watch
On all sides

    We do ride the tides of life and so true that they can’t be measured. All unique to us.
