Life is like an ocean

I'm in the middle of the ocean
treading water and swimming freely
I am happy
The sun is bright blue and high above

The the water becomes choppy and cold
My sun is gone, gone, gone
I flail helplessly agianst the waves
My happiness vanished
A wave towers above me and crashes down
I am knocked senseless

I liked the last line especially, it's just like a phrase with definite finality. A way to end a poem. 

I like how you call it 'my sun', it really gives the poem a sense of deeper meaning.
