A Fantasy on the Water

The sun gives your figure an angelic glow.

Your white skin reflects the warm colors of summer,

As your body rests upon the gently rolling waves.

You are the embodiment of my dreams.

You can never comprehend what your presence does to me,

As you lay there unmoving and silent.

You are the reason I strive for excellence.

My greatest aspiration is to be inside you,

As we feel the motion of the ocean together.

You are the one I want as a companion.

I long to be with you in that blue abyss,

As we trek on to unknown destinations together.

You are the one I want to spend my golden years with.

My travel partner in this journey though life,

As we move closer to the line between this world and the next.
