The following poem I wrote when I was working in Makassar and got inspired by the People, sea, Angin Mamiri and the Makassar scenery in general. I hope somebody likes it.

With best regards from Nick

 

Oh, I wish to be like the sea

Love song written by Nick R. Durrer 

 

Oh, I wish I could be like the sea
So, from the shore you would look at me
And when your beauty is floating in me
Then I enjoy the time you are sharing with me

I send my waves gently touching your skin
And make you to be my sweet little queen
But you donít know how my feelings are for you
And all I can do is to dream about you

Oh, I wish to be like the sea
Canít you see that I need you with me?

If clouds could whisper and waves could love
Then we would be higher then the sky above
If only clouds could whisper and the wind could shout
Then they could tell you what this is all about

But I am only like a blue ocean
And Iím so full of emotion
When youíre angry, I turn into a storm
But donít worry this is just the natures norm

Oh, I wish I could be like the sea
Donít you know that I need you near me.

When youíre worried I change my color, oh dear
But deep inside you know that Iím clear
For you must know somehow what I feel for you
For there is not much more I can do for you

When you sleep, I rest in deep darkness
Only some stars reflecting in me
While I know that the only star I love
Is when you are so close to me.

Oh, I wish to be like the sea
Donít you know that the one who loves you is me

I know, all I can do is dream about you
About my sweet love in a far distance
But just to see you and think about you
Makes it look as my dreams come through

Oh, I wish I could be like the sea
And gently wrap you into my gusty waves
For when you would be with me
I would not have to feel like a slave

Oh, I want so much feeling like the sea
And wish that you would stay forever with me.
