An Oceans Away

Life has given me a second chance to make things right,
And though you are an ocean’s away I shall make you mine.
My heart shall be carried away by the current across the sea,
And shall not stop the voyage until it has reached your hand.

Faith has caused us to be separated for circumstances unknown,
But the fire that still burns inside my chest will guide my vessel.
The elements that have stood time and prevented us from being united,
Will cast no shadows from the sun as my ship will travel undaunted.

You mean the world to me and my tears continue to shed from my eyes,
And the pain has rightfully maintain inside of me locked away until that day.
I have not rested in peace since the glorious moment I saw you,
But be assured that my spirit will make the journey inside my heart.

If you refuse my love the organ that gives me life need not return to me,
For I am nothing without your passion to hold me in its grasp forever more.
I love you eternally and I wait for the day that I can kiss your lips in victory,
And to live without you I can no longer be and no empty ship shall return without you.
