It Never Was An Ocean

It never was an ocean but
it might as well have been

stretching out before me
with no end in sight

You never were my guardian
but you might as well have been

as every happy memory I have
is wrapped up inside of you

It never was an ocean but
it might as well have been

and you and I have
shared that shore

no need to look
at each other

but only out
past the waves

I don’t know what
we are looking for
I only know we see
the same thing

In my mind’s eye lately I find myself at the lake staring out toward Canada, and just as naturally as that water flows Misi stands beside me.
