My Secret Ocean

My Secret Ocean

My ocean has suddenly dried up,
There are no more ships passing by.
I remember how beautiful they were before,
But with my heart sadden the waves are no more.

Where there was water only sand remains in its place,
And broken shells litter this massive passage for traveling.
No free floating currents that brought life to a place of dreams,
But I see no floating ships of hope bringing love through city streams.

My ocean has lost the lust to live,
There are no pretty fish swimming by.
I remember embracing them in my arms,
But my broken heart is now dry and lost its charm.

Where there was once moisture lubricating our faces,
And a mist, it has been replaced by a gust of arid dry air.
No free blowing winds packed with droplets to wet our sour lips,
But I see with eyes shut as my internal sensors can see no more ships.

My ocean has suddenly disappeared,
There are no beautiful vessels anymore.
I remember the bluish colors of the ocean,
But my beaten pumping organ is crying in emotion.

Where I found peace and a love to my hearts content,
And tranquility, it has undeniably begun a transformation.
No free thoughts of sight to guide my eyes in waves of dignity,
But I see none floating debris of a life eroding due to human stupidity.

    My river of hope, my river of dreams that empty into the ocean that I miss so much. An angel has granted me the vision to see the waves as they gently touch my feet and the warmth reaches my heart. I shall keep this picture in my heart so that I can rest and dream in the comfort of my soul. I am grateful that I know of such an angel, her name is linmarie, and she gently folds her wings so that she can walk amongs us. Maybe, it is only I that can see her, maybe it is the whole world, but in my world, I have the pleasure of knowing her and I place my arms around this angel to let her know that I am truely blessed of such sight. Maybe this Christmas bring you the happiness that your heart seeks and may all your troubles be gone with the wishes that the holidays will bring go. Go in peace and be glad that your heart is so big that some many of us can have a piece of it and your heart grows back those parts that we take from you. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Years to you and your family because it is all that I have and can give. You know the rest, so I will not speak any more.

    Oscar, may your brilliant and beautiful light from within radiate forever bringing you oceans of life and love to taste, feel and breathe. Big hugs from me to you. You are loved by many. You matter. You are a beautiful man with a heart of gold. Peace and love be with you and yours forever, Lisa =)XO

  • Perhaps if I cry long enough my tears can fill my own ocean and with a nice wind current maybe a sailing ship will bring me someone to hold me, touch me, hug me, and whisper some kind words to my ears. I thank you so much for staying true to your words, and please rest my sweet friend, I want to make sure that when I wake you are still strong enough to speak and write to me. I seem to take to much of your time, I hope that you find peace in my words too, missing you already.

    Well, believe that a sailing ship will bring you a special someone to hold you, touch you, hug you, kiss you too and whisper lovely words in your ears. If it were me, I would whisper something sweet in your ears.
    No, you do not take up my time. I’m actually good at managing my time here on the “bubble”. I know how much time I like spending on everyone’s work. I enjoy your writings and poetry. I do find peace in your words. Thank you for being you. Your gestures and words mean more than you know. Sleep well…pleasant dreams. =)XO
