We’re Old Friends, the Sea and I

By Jack D. Zeidman

 

We’re old friends, the sea and I

Communed together, beneath the sun

Storms will pass, and birds will fly

We’ll come together, by and by.

 

We’re old friends, the sea and I

Listened to each other’s sound

The noise of sadness, joy, and peace

Intertwine, a living fleece

 

We’re old friends, the sea and I

Kindred spirits, in ebb and flow

Whether calm or in distress

Harbor truth, and nothing less

 

We’re old friends, the sea and I

No deceptions, ploys, or airs

What you see, is what you get

No occasion for regret

 

Yes, we’re old friends, the sea and I ….


Jack Zeidman is a teacher/published writer who lives with the love of his life, his beautiful wife, Gladys, in Los Angeles, California. He has composed numerous short stories and poems, written and produced a variety of school holiday programs, and is currently working on a screenplay. He and his soulmate love animals, old movies, music, the beach, baseball, and, most important of all, studying the Bible. As they journey through life together, their faith provides Jack and Gladys with the deep, abiding support needed to weather the storms of this life. Both of them believe, however, that after every storm there may be a wondrous rainbow, and at the end of that rainbow is peace and happiness.
