I miss the smell of the ocean right outside my window
I miss being wakened by the first rays of the sun
I miss the quiet lapping of waves on the beach
I long for those peaceful moments combing the sand

I miss the near constant display of rainbows
I miss watching the river otters play
I miss the foam engulfing my toes
I long for that salty breeze to blow through my hair

I miss the array of sea glass scattered on the shore
I miss walking for hours lost in time
I miss the birds and their conversations
I long to be there again
