My woman is the ocean, her waves are divine,
She rocks me like no other, my heart a vessel sailing
Upon the fresh waters of her mind, her beauty from
Horizon to Horizon I navigate by the stars in her eyes
Her power is so vast her love so deep, my devotion
Fears not the depths, secretly I yearn to drift lost
In her currents, my woman is the ocean to me.
