If Oceans Were Hope

If oceans were hope,

Let mine fill the space

Between me and my dreams

And the world that you face.

Let memory be reason

And distance be strength,

And let years in the world

Be but seconds in length.

If wanting were voice,

Let mine raise the ground.

Yet grant it the volume

Of silence, in sound.

For if words, so fine,

Could untangle fates rope;

There'd be no need for reason,

Nor oceans for hope.
