Your Ocean

I stand on the edge of your ocean
Ready to dive in
Wanting to discover the depths of you
I have looked at the surface of you
Beautiful beyond my puny words
Sometimes your calmness relaxes me
I become lost in your serenity
My eyes are stretched to your horizon
I can not see all of you
I play innocently along your shores
I dip my toes into your cool waters
Slowly I am drawn into you
I feel you encompass my body
Then there is an undertow
I am helpless to resist
Drawn further from the shore
To the centre of you
I do not wish to escape
I trust you with my very soul
Sinking beneath the surface
I am wrapped in your embrace
Color surrounds me
My being is infused with your joy
The feeling of weightlessness
We are now joined
You are the beginning and completion of me
I was not meant to just stand on your shores

Dedicated to the Love of my life. I continue to explore the depths of her.

    Hi Richard, words that come straight from the heart mean more than any others, and these my Friend come straight from the heart. This Is romance at Its gentle best. If It can touch my heart I can only think that your Love would have adored this write. It just sings off the page Into the heart with such a gossamer touch. Now this Is excellent. This does touch to the depths, such tenderness In your words. You are a true poet my Friend. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.
