The water laps gently at my toes,
covering my feet, then my ankles.
It stops at my knees.
It is cool and refreshing.
It does not feel like any water I have known before...
It is clean and it washes me gently.
I wave suddenly washes over me.
There is no fear or torment.
No terror, only pleasure.
I feel, I feel something new.
More than hope or waiting.
It is expectancy!
I look forward in every opportunity with out darkness or the shadow of fear.
