Sea Shells - A Parting Gift

a poem by Christine Anne Shaw, UK

An amulet they've been to me,
a token gift to say farewell.
A balm to smoothe away the rough
which kept me captured by their spell.

At night I'd hear the rolling sea,
I'd listen close so I could hear
an ocean's murmur far from home,
the ebb and flow in my young ear.

A symphony of soothing sound
that hushed the mind that couldn't sleep.
A lullaby of crystal tides
two magic shells for me to keep.

I cherished them and held them dear,
soft buffed the pearl to make them shine,
an irridescent shimmer there
of pinkish green and opaline.

And how I knew that you would be,
though far away a part of me.
