A Love Letter to John 34
The night before I meet you I was lost,
empty and scared of what lies beyond.....
the air that I breathe was so thin
Far distant was the vastness of the ocean
yet I could barely smell
the dead fishes it contained,
unforgiving high,razore-tipped waves.....
I can still recall the chill.....
no singing mermaids to hear.
I was drowning when.....
you came and hold me,
took me out from the waters,
from the hands of the demons
that lurk on the ocean floors.
The night after I meet you
I was renewed,
hopeful and content
of what the following days hold.....
Brave enough to face the drunken shadows upon the tides -
collided waves that formed monstrous ,unimaginable heights.
I would gladly battle.....
tamed the hungry sharks if needed;
to explore the sea with you,
as we continue our voyage......
