It’s Like The Motion In The Ocean


It’s like the motion in the ocean

Smooth like lotion

Or total commotion

It’s up then it’s down

It’s in, then its out

Its high, then its low

But all the way, it’s always wet

Never a dry moment

We are like characters in a soap opera

Lovers in a tele-novella

Performers in a passionate opera

Like a pendulum rocking back and forth

Till it rests in a quiet place

We fight , we break up

We kiss, we make up

But we are always as one

Like the waves that always return to the sea

Like the sun and its shine

The moon and its light

The water and its fall

We have fallen deep into each other

We keep it going

Like the motion in the ocean
