It Comes in Waves

it comes in waves
the wind that shakes the elms
it comes in waves
the flood that overwhelms
the moan that climbs
the heart that caves
it comes in waves
behold, behave

it comes in waves
hellos to those who pass
it comes in waves
the goodbyes through the glass
the light it shines
the time it shaves
it comes in waves
the grief, the grace

it's a deep green valley
it's a pitch black alleyway
it's a crowning, it's a crawling
it's a silence, it's a calling

it comes in waves
the cord, the scale, the scream
it comes in waves
the sleep that knows no dreams
this here's a love that knows no graves
it comes in waves
be broke, be brave
