A wonderful poem by Elena Ruiz. It lifts the spirits and makes you think of loved ones. The poem resonated with me with love and expectation, and it is a joy to read, perfect for those longing for loved ones who are not close by during the pandemic.
Over The Ocean
Over the ocean, over the sea, That's where I want to be. My hearts in London, where it will stay I have been yearning for a man, over the ocean Maybe soon we will meet; My heart goes pitter-patter, skipping a beat. There’s nothing as exciting as that smile, And that voice—a symphony so wild. Now as time passes, and the months go by, I find myself wondering why. When I return an angel fallen, grieving and battered, exiled from heaven, I will miss what I’ve begun, and always question what I’ve done. For I am the Phoenix and he is my fire, Forever and ever. Let the flame grow higher.
