At the bottom of the ocean
Was a mermaid clad in gold
The secrets of her heart
Remained as yet untold

A sailor once she’d happened on
Drowning beneath the raging sea
Though she’d wanted him for herself
With love she set him free

Her journal is filled with sketches
His face from every view
Would he remember her kindness
She wondered if he knew

Swimming to the surface
She needed to feel the breeze
A boat – it happened so quickly
Trapped – she had been seized

She didn’t try to fight it
She really didn’t care
What life had she beneath the waves
With noone her heart to share

Her face fell upon the sailor
But she could not speak a word
At last I’ve found you love, he said
Proof the unspoken word is heard

      Huge grin. We have too much fun. If anyone ever read our exchanges they’d think we’re crazy; good thing we like that just fine. Should we IM or text next? Bahaha
