Flood - I have loved you since time began | 11-Jan-10

Enquirer is trying to identify the author of this poem published in a monthly women's magazine, possibly 'Cosmopolitan', in the late 1970s:

Flood

I have loved you
Since time began
And will love you
Beyond the span of man's imagination
I envelop you in
Soft caress of
Gentleness,
Or passion's raging
Tempest
Where I ravage
With savage claim
Your soft domain
Taking pleasure
In the pain
Of my wild
Domination.
You passively
Beneath lie still
Until at peace
My will
Subsides
And lessens
With the ebbing
Tides.
I have loved you
Since the time
Of birth.
?? the ocean (I am the ocean?)
?? the earth (You the earth?)          Last lines obscured.

Comments:

I have a clipping of this poem but no information as to its origins. The words are all intact and the last 2 lines are:
I am the ocean
You the earth

As you had thought.
Is there any news on the author?
Many thanks
