Love Becomes An Ocean

Barefoot we spend our time in spring, Just giggling kids - how sweet the dream When we, in love are blossoming. We splash inside a cool fresh stream. Our time in spring - how sweet the dream! A few years pass; there comes an ache for something more in summertime. We feel such heat! Down by the lake we soothe our ache. It is sublime down by the lake in summertime! Refrain: Love is a stream, and then it grows. A river soon - through life it flows! And two enduring to the end see love become an ocean then! A rushing river, wanting more, through highs and lows, still so in love, we roll down to the ocean’s shore where memories we’ve plenty of! We stroll fall’s shore, still so in love. An ocean of devotion lies ahead of us – deep like the sea. Our souls live on; the greatest prize - to share out love eternally! Oh winter’s love, deep like the sea Refrain: Love is a stream, and then it grows A river soon, through life it flows! And two enduring to the end see love becomes an ocean then! for Bobby May's 'Your Interpretation of what Love is' Poetry Contest

Love the thought here of two in love starting out as streams and love becoming stronger in time, likened to the ocean. Sadly, the youtube link no longer works, so I wasn't able to hear the tune.
