Tuesday, July 20

you went to the sea to die
but in this sea you found your retribution
carried it high
the world to see the triumph in your eyes
so blue
as the sea
and you showed me the truth
and you gave me your strengths
your wit and your charm have saved me too
when i am weak, i come to you
and you give me the shells and the life
that you found when you were floating there
upon the reeds like an otter
and these things comfort me
for if someone like you
could fear
and disdain
but find hope in such things
then they must be strong
for you never do - anything -
but that is whole-heartedly,
and if you were turned from the world
and salvation
came in such a package,
then it could show anyone
