Marea Crescente

If you were an ocean and I,
your jellyfish
I'd float within you,
be whatever you wish
You'd shape me
in your overwhelming power
Suspended in you
like a hanging flower

Take a good look,
try to understand
Without you and me
there's only dry land
My back to the sun,
the wind and the world
While you carve the seashores,
the shells and pearls

Cover my nakedness with some of your own
We're far too transparent to survive all alone
It's you I want to face when falling asleep
Knowing my destiny is in your deep

Without you I'm nothing,
to die in the sand
Inside you I'm love,
watch me bloom in your hand
