Humans have a very strong scent memory. What’s the scent that transports you to a special place?
The ocean smell transports me,
To a place I wish I could be.
I wish I could be walking along the sand,
Looking out at the grand ocean from where I stand.
The ocean breeze whipping at my face,
Oh how I wish I could be at this place.
But alas, I am here on my bed,
Dreaming this world in my own little head.
I wish could be anywhere but here,
And smell the ocean so near.
The smells of the ocean are one of a kind,
The scent is soft and clear for all to mind.
I love the smell of the sea,
It reminds me of who I want to be.
I am meant to be out enjoying this vast open land,
But that was not how my life was planned.
So I remember the smells of the ocean to keep me true,
As one day I know I will come back to you.
