Ocean, oh my sweet ocean
I smell your scent among the forests
upon the rivers that flow.
The salty taste you bring
lingers on my tong,
part of me belongs to you
remembering how you look at me
with those watery eyes
how you take me in
like a lover.
In moon light you want me to bathe, in your coolness
filling my heart with your warmth
if I tell you something will you keep it
in your coral, in your soul whispers.
A piece of me floats on your surface
like a feather belonging only to you
so, I surrender.
How precious you are to me my endless friend
I fear you at times, your power scares me
can you believe that for a moment.
Love has no fear. I know
What you do to me, no one will ever now
just one look at you and I change, I transform
into a butterfly of freedom
you are the cocoon I live in
till my wings of color and your pattern
creates me in your vision.
You are the Beloved's arms; To me
as the sun settles in your arms
saying goodbye to the world
for a brief moment
allowing the moon, her lover
to shine resting upon your arms
in the darkness.
