I see you in the ocean.


I see your blush in the shallow water fish;

trying so hard to see ashore,


but fleeing once seen by more.

I see your laugh in the waves;

a constant spilling and overturning,

never too calm and always flurrying.


I see you in the ocean.


I see your cries in the sand;

the whole buried at the bottom,

but still turns the taste of the sea.

I see your worries in the tide;

hidden away in the dark,

but those present cannot flee.


I see you in the ocean.


I see your eyes in the sunrise;

the sun turning the surface a glint.

I see your hope in the sandbar;

on top of the world -- away from even eye’s squint.


I see you in the ocean --

and oh,

how I love the sea.

You are one person with the entire complexity of the sea.
