The ocean

Had ocean been my confidant I'd have given it All of my truths for safekeeping Tales i would have written Of seashells picking girls on beaches Whose golden bodies were Like isles of dreamland But whose fates were Like lines drawn in sand. Had ocean been my confidant I'd have given it All my loneliness I'd have walked with the wind Clasping its finger in my fist On distant paths From whence no one comes back! Had ocean been my confidant I'd have given it all my depths Stepping into its limitless Blue bosom I'd have made earth into my bark Sky into my sails I'd have made the woeful moment Of separation A connecting link between you and me. Had ocean been my confidant!
