Ocean Ode

Dream of me, love, when I’m far away
In the bliss of your slumber, remember me.
One eternal moment of shared sunlight
Lives on in my heart, Immortalized.

In peace, you sleep, wrapped in my tenderness
I watch you, in marvel of your simple perfection.
My mind touches your face, memorizing each subtle line,
Heart bursting at the seams, aching with this love

Think of me, love, when I’m far away
Gather our memories and hold them near
For across oceans, I shall yearn for thee,
My soul’s resting place is in your arms

Each second, each day, I collect my tears
In the silence of me, I shed them now.
Looking on unto your magnificence, dear
I fear I shall crumble in the light of your face

Hold me close, love, though I’m far away
Sweet mornings, wild evenings and all mirth in between
Our seconds, minutes, days-wrap them upon your lonely bosom
And feel my heart beating alongside thy own.

We are not mere players in this game of Fate.
Kindred spirits rising above each rushing tide
We have our destinies we hold with both hands
Into the sunset, into ever after, we ride-intertwined.

Wait for me, love, though I’m far away
We swore forever to each other on that fateful day.
Stay with me, love, in sweet memory
I am pledged to you as you to me.

Love me forever, love, though I’m far away
Slumber deep but do not forget.
For this eternity, we’ve claimed for our own
I shall weep now but never regret.

You and me together, love, though I’m far away
Call me in the darkness of your night, dear love
CalL me to that place and time of our immortality
I shall be with you in our eternal reverie
