As wide as wide could ever be
I searched the majesty of the sea
I lingered long at the rocky shore
and listened to the ocean’s score.
My heart my heart was racing fast
for love had found me at long last
and surer never could I be
that our love was love for eternity.
I looked I looked upon the docks
boats all idle with windless socks
and calling for me and calling for me
was my sweet angel from yonder tree.
I glanced my glance it was so brief
and the seagulls drifted above the reef
sitting with her and kissing her there
my love was my love and I hadn’t a care.
