Oh sea,
carry me to your core,
Make me yours and
I want no more.

I won’t be like
your waves for sure,
Who always love
to runaway for shore,

You will have
nothing to deplore.

Just bestow me
with the wings of water,
that have no extinction to offer,
that have no purity improper.

That will enable me to explore,
Your currents, your tides
ad your ocean floor,
I will never leave you
in tsunami, whirlpool,
sea storm or more.

As they are yours
because you keep them all in store,

I have not made this plea
for you to ignore.
Make me yours and
I want no more.
