Wade in the Water

from I've Been Waiting for You by Nhojj

As a child I would walk by the sea on my way home from school. The breeze against my face was like a gentle lullaby. The sun kissed my face, my arms, my legs. I felt like Something… or maybe Someone was talking to me in a unspoken, yet familiar language.

It spoke of sadness and hope. It spoke of struggle and peace. It spoke of desire and satisfaction. It spoke of death and rebirth… love and heartbreak… beauty and darkness. I’m forever thankful for those early conversations… about life.


Every step along your way
Will lead your closer to me
And every sound my mouth creates
Will lure you closer to me

Wade in the water
It's really not deep
Gaze out on the ocean if only for a peak
And when you get to that side
Where you feel you have to hide
Think of cool waters- the way you made me smile
Think of soft winds- the way you felt inside

In the dark where I wait for the dawn
I will say your cognomen
And when you do perceive
I'll be hear calming your fears
