Sea of Tranquility

You are my calm in this raging storm,
You are the anchor I cling to.
I see images of us together,
I know we'll share our dreams forever.

We lay beneath the weeping willow,
I don't ever want you to go.
We'll share our most intimate thoughts,
We'll build a future together.

We'll travel around the world,
See Paris, Rio, and Venice.
Swim among the colorful coral,
And watch the sun go down.

I'll cherish our memories always,
Until our dying days.
We'll leave a living legacy
Of the love and laughter we shared.

Our children will look back fondly
And have something to strive for.
They'll gaze upon our happy picture
And wish us lasting joy forever.
