"This one's for the girls who have ever had a broken heart, who have wished upon a shooting star, you're beautiful the way you are..."
-Martina McBride

Shall I compare our love to an ocean?
nature’s beauty flourishing between us
its vast seas testing time and devotion
such a whimsical landscape we caress

and when waters are rough and winds are coarse
through storm’s blight, unsurpassed beauty remains
and the tides will lay placid in due course
for tranquility will forever reign

as the ocean deepens and flows as one
it develops and clarity prevails
but an ocean can not be an ocean
unless it can be seen without any veils

Oh, to compare our love to an ocean
shows the always behind my emotion.

This poem is dedicated to a special friend, Conor. Once my boyfriend, but forever in my heart. He was the inspiration of this poem, and I wrote it for him December 14th, 2010 in the midst of his wrestling season.
