you are like the ocean

I stand on the beach and your tide rushes up to me 

your foam softly brushes my toes

it feels nice to be with you

so I wade in further

your slow rolling waves rise against my legs

you make me feel peaceful

so I wade in further

your warm presence encirles my waist

I feel happy to be so close to you 

so I wade in further

you blanket my shoulders in your infinite blueness

you make me warm and light

so I wade in further

your gentle waves caress my cheeks 

your kiss makes me feel like I can breathe underwater

so I wade in further 

your surface closes over the top of my head

it is then that I realize

I waded too deep
