[Poem] Mermaid

In the tradition of Throwback Thursday here is a poem from 2005.

Beauty shimmers to the surface

Of the beauty that is your face

Meeting in unexpected places

I know how you feel at a second’s glance

The grace of your understanding

You bring out in me who I wish to be

For your love and repentance

I will remember everything.

Eyes like winter but mouth like rain

Skin like a stretch of perfect sand

Ears that listen and voice that restrains

The thoughts I used to have

Songs that you sung to me

And the things you told me

Never thought I’d seen you still

Voice not sobbing and shaking still

I will remember you.
