Drops of love

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.
