The Ocean
by Shirley Anne Velazquez

   As I look up at the sky so blue
and look down at the ocean so green
   I find the love I have for you 
the one you haven't seen.
   Waves splash and splash on the shore 
the sand looks soft and brown
   I ask myself if there's a cure
for this happy face turned upside-down.

   The reason why I cannot smile 
is because of all my doubts and fears:
   Is it really that worthwhile?
Should I wipe away the tears?

   The ocean looks so beautiful and peaceful
like the seashells on the ground.... this moment I feel so wonderful 
because now my frown is upside down.

   As I had listened to the shattering waters 
it sounded like someone saying Hush.
   And reminded me that this person loves me 
and always will,
   I also love him, don't you see my love for
him he'll always feel?
