Fill Me Up

Fill Me Up


Left behind
On the beach
That chilly fall day

An empty shell
I felt full
I thought life was good
Even just for a few hours

The beginning of the end
This was the climax
Left behind in an empty shell
Never to be returned

Only to return to the sea
When I thought you
Would return to me

Instead tossed around
Back to the shore
Back to the sea
Never sure how long it would be

Pieces broken off
On the journey
New things attached
Life started to grow
Once I finally let go

The shell still broken
Still empty
Found a new place in between some rocks
Safe and sound

Slowly filling up
Finding new growth
A new life

Filled to the brim
