I Want To Be The Ocean

I want to be the ocean, 
I want to be the sea,
I want to be the place people seek out to feel their heart beat free

I want to engulf others in a cleansing embrace,
And hear their deep sigh as the worry leaves their face

I want to be the ocean,
I want to be the deep blue,
I want to be the thing that inspires you to be unapologetically true

I want to be the ocean,
I want to roar when the skies are grey,
I want you to feel me and know you can't go on living in non-compassionate ways

I want to be the ocean,
I want to be able to change your course with the wave of my hand,
And leave you aching for that familiar land,
Hanging on through the storm,
And waking up with new eyes, that are a lot more kind and warm

I want to be the ocean,
I want to be the calm, settled as smooth as glass,
And for you to notice, every storm indeed does pass

I want to be the ocean,
I want to be the steady lull that can always put you to sleep,
And for you to know the secrets that you share with me, I will always keep

I want to be the ocean,
Accepting of all that enter, even if you're just passing through,
Yes, I want to use the ocean's eyes and see the world through equality's view

I want to be the ocean,
Not in full control,
I let the sun and moon pull me and together, we are whole. 

I want to be the ocean,
When one wave crashes, another one is born,
Just as our hearts come new and leave here worn. 

I want to be the ocean,
Concurrently, shallow and deep
A transparent mystery, all my lessons; yours to keep. 

So, when I leave this Earth
I want to be forever cooled and in flow,
I want to be the ocean,
You can find me when the sun hits the surface and causes a glow.
