You remind me of the ocean,
Calm yet so powerful;
Its utter vastness of tranquility mimics your heart.
When your waves hit the shore,
I feel engulfed in its embrace.
Like the warmth of your cozy arms.
You embody the sun,
Burning bright above constantly.
When you kiss me,
The touch of your lips
Shreds through the darkness of night,
Like the first rays of the sun kissing the earth.
You resemble the west wind,
Sweeping me off my feet with your charm,
When your gentle breeze caresses my body,
My whole world immerses into a trance.
The euphoria of being with you
Is like the first sight of spring after winter.
I realize then you are like the earth,
A silent protector, a forgiving lover.
When life hurls adversity at us,
You are there embracing me, loving me,
Guiding me home.
