My Mermaid

By I IS ME

I love sitting here on the shore listening to the crashing waves 
Watching with a little clarity as the fog rolls in, as if riding the waves 
I watch with the patience of a hunter for a connection grave to grave 
As the fog slowly lifts, a vision of you made me feel as if I was saved 

I was so far down in the depths when you reached down for my hand 
A life line was grasped, with buoyant light giving life saving commands 
Ever so slowly allowed to decompress as I was steadily risen 
The air that you breathed into my lungs was life giving 

As I rose to the surface, your light entered my darkness more and more 
I felt myself separating with pain, yes I felt as we tore 
It's hard to know how deep we were, maybe as deep as the ocean floor 
We we're so entwined pain brought depression and painted my very core 

But you could see below the depths deciding on a last chance rescue 
The last second of the minute and breath, and you were right on cue 
With your eyes serving as beacons, there's no need for speaking 
The light that you're emitting reaches my core, pain seeking 

As I rise a weight is lifted, suddenly blame is shifted 
With you holding my hand, I felt a connection that was gifted 
As I broke the surface, you wrapped me in the warmth of your embrace 
As you continued to resuscitate, giving warmth and blowing on my face 

You swam me back and deposited me here on this beach 
And now I love these shores, simply knowing that you're within reach 
Has me sitting here listening to the music of crashing waves played 
As I while away hour upon hour in anticipation of My Little Mermaid
