More Than a Drop In the Ocean

When the water is clear and still like a mirror
I can see you on the surface of the river
Floating away and leaving your troubles
Behind. As you break through the bubbles
On the surface I am fully mesmerized, not
By your ample, wet flesh but by what caught
My attention from that first day, your heart
In its imperfect beauty. I love when you dart
Out in the rain because you are so carelessly
Beautiful inside and out. You are so fearlessly
Chaotic but you bring calmness to everyone
And everywhere around like you are the sun.
Like the gentle ocean waves you are bringing
Peace to my soul and mind. You are clinging
To that reflection because it is “perfection”
 To you but it is only an artificial connection
To yourself and who you keep thinking you
Should be instead of becoming a new
Person overnight, embracing life’s changes.
You and the water are making exchanges.
