An ocean splashes beneath your feet
And the water is dangerous and deep.
If I try to measure the ocean
You will always be out of my reach
While I am swept away by the currents.
My tears burn hot and
Remind me of my futile attempts
To rescue you and keep you safe.
You are all I want.
Your love is pure; mine is not.
Your heart is cool; mine runs hot.
Like the ocean beneath your feet,
We are apart and may never meet.
If I get another chance
By enduring each towering wave,
I might reach high enough
To love you,
One drop at a time.
