I would say as if my dreams were real
and try to soothe you while you send me
as if mine would cease
I would step through the sky if stars
would make way
for spells with no end
And cease to hold them dear
in vain
I would invite a trying cause to be my guide
A pain-invoking trial to span my wings
and drip the same tears for peace
I would stay the course for more
retrace a step in sync
And line your heart with words
They would trace this haunted line
invite you inside
And ask humbly
that we don’t cease
And once you feel how far I’d wade
I would ask you simply
if you can brave 
Those wondrous seas
with me

My love, I would wade
through the words with you
and arrange the vowels into waves
and the spaces into a tightly knit 
And ride this lonely tide
against the sun
Its grey would gleefully return to green
And compose an imagined dream into your silhouette
I would answer every quiz you emit
And turn this light to yours,
eternally tuned to me
For like when driven eyes picked yours out
against the sun,
I know no other emotion
And the wondrous seas 
of which you speak
Enshrine a glorious mood and never cease
Like pasted tears of love and stateliness
that lie between our hearts…
we can never cease
