Power of Tides

While looking to the far horizon line
I feel her coolness in my soul define
The sweetness of love; in her hands my heart
Is thus exposed to the power of tides
And so, I watch another wave depart
It carries my love to a distant shore
Where she is waiting for the gentle kiss
Awakening senses to our hearts’ rapport
In long held dreams that thoughts cannot dismiss
As I look out across the sea once more
My eyes are searching for my love divine
Upon each wave that breaks and then subsides
For wild oceans could not stop Cupid’s dart
Now love has called us to its wondrous bliss
