The ocean has its treasures from ships long forgotten.
Forever it will keep the mysteries and secrets it holds.
It owns the lives of strangers and cradles babies in its soft floor.
Memories are wrapped in all their glory with pearls.
But the ocean is a mere river compared to the vastness of my heart.
Forever it will hold you and wrap you in its love.
Along with treasured feelings, you’ll be the diamond of them all.
You can occupy my deepest thoughts.
You won’t be cold, my heart will warm you.
So let me have you and come to me.
Step out of my dreams and let my arms hold you.
My heart is open, waiting for you.
Longing for your love, give me a chance.
Then destiny can take its place and together we can prove
that such beautiful love does exist in such a lonely world.
Let the flowers dry with envy and let the birds sing with jealousy.
We’ll walk among the clouds and have our dreams in our hands.
The world can keep revolving, but time cannot affect us.
We’ll have our own limits and live within the boundaries of our love.
So let the breeze blow softly and me.
Just as a river from deep within the forest finds its way to the sea,
let your love from deep within your heart flow unto me.
When time catches up, we’ll rest on a bed of roses and a blanket of silk.
Then together we’ll wake up and share eternity…
~ 1998, Inspired by “Titanic”
