Waves Crashing Against My Heart

I nestle comfortably in the sand, 
 Sitting next to you, hand in hand.

A cool breeze, and salt in the air,
 The wind picks up and whips around our hair.

The stars glitter and shine so bright, 
 I'm glad we decided to go out tonight.

Waves crash violently against the sand, 
 This is the most romantic night you ever planned.

So simple, yet so full of thought, 
 I'm sorry earlier that we had fought.

I see that you're a love so dear, 
 I also know that I need not fear.

As we sit on this white, sandy beach
 Its the sound of peace that we seek.

Lay me down and gently kiss my lips, 
 Place a hand on either one of my hips.

A sigh of content escapes my mouth, 
 As we stare at the constellations to the South.

I wish this night could last forever, 
 As we journey on our new endeavor. 

Sadly, it won't, but that's okay.
 As we enjoy ourselves on the beach we lay.

What is it about the ocean that makes me at peace?
 With each wave, my calmness, seems to increase.

    Great rhyming couplets with much emotion, expressiveness, and descriptiveness. Congratulations on being featured. The negative ions when one is close to moving water as the sea, ocean, creeks, and rivers causes the change in our bodies to feel at peace. Great for people who are depressed etc. Keep the magical pen flowing. Sara
