Cool summer breezes
The wind through your hair
The smell of the ocean
No regret, no despair.

The memories have faded
The guilt and the pain
Remorse and
All the feelings of shame.

Scattered and wind blown
Like each grain of sand
Unable to hold you
Slipping right through my hands.

The weight on your shoulders
Harsh words, heavy blows
The deep cut of sorrow
Are gone, let them go.

Look beyond the horizon
Cast your eyes toward the sea
The chains have been broken
At last, you are free.

No reason to wonder
Forget the cold stares
No reason to worry
Don’t look back, don’t you dare.
