The day we escaped to our secret paradise,
Hidden in the sand was the lost in your eyes
Replaced by the waves was how you smiled
I will always remember in that isle.
I found my lost pieces by you breaking free
Gentle soul crashing to the ripples of the sea
You being you, in every shell, in every sand,
Floating and flying with you in my hand.
Dream my love, let go of all your anchors
Catch the horizons of your every core
Take the long, narrow-detoured roadways
May it lead you to where your boat stays.
I am your boat, your compass, your lighthouse
In your ocean, as deep as its depths allow
Yet you are my sun, my ocean, my paradise
Swim me back to the smile in your eyes.
-Alfred A. De Vera
