Silence echoes loudly, as so softly I breath.
A heartbeat sounds, and it seems so far away,
Yet I realize, as I look at you,
That it is my own heart which beats.

As it beats, it follows a pattern,
A rhythm that mirrors the rushing tide,
A rhyme that mimics the soft breeze,
Or the gentle humming of wings.

I gaze deep into your eyes,
And I loose myself entirely in them.
For my love for you is like the ocean,
Raging, calm, expansive, unpredictable.
