My desire to fish burns deep from inside,

I can not stand to be away from the ocean.

And every time I see water I get the notion,

To head to the dock where from the world, I can hide.

And with Mother Nature, I can abide.

The salty air is like a sweet love potion

And the waves seductive, with their flowing motion,

Put a smile on my face a mile wide.


It is from the sea that I cannot escape,

The ocean is calling my name

And if it's nothing I catch, it will be a shame.

I must return empty handed to the cape.


It is surely the sea that holds my heart,

And not even death can due us part. s go here)
