# 6 Let the sea be your source of inspiration

Think of the oceans as seas of dreams.
Dream big son,
of large beaches
so you have plenty of room to stand.
Go forward
through the waves
of disappointment and joy.
Let the sands of mistakes
be washed away with tides
and the lessons
gathered into castles.
Walk with courage
watching the horizons for storms,
Keep your heart open
the sunrises and sets colorfully with love.
Remember my words
for letting the sea
be your source of inspiration
the beach a reminder for
characteristics of continuity.
Remember me.

TJ, I honestly think this is my favorite poem you have ever written. I could dissect it endlessly to tell you why I feel that way, but it all boils down to the fact that everything about it is so "right."
