Love at the Bottom of the Sea

Love at the bottom of the sea

       every glistening bubble a kiss
       to touch my lips ever so gently

       every surging wave a caress
       dispatched as a gentle reminder

       every sunbeam a loving smile
       to sparkle in the depth’s inky night

       every fish swimming by a messenger
       sent with a love letter just for me

       every jellyfish and coral a bouquet
       to brighten the darkness of my days

       every flowering reef a garden
       of your love for me.

Love at the bottom of the sea

       swaying and swirling
       splashing and swishing

       cresting and undulating
       moving and moved by the tides

       ruled by the waxing and waning of the moon
       warmed by the hot rays of the sun

       not a cold dark grave
       but a starlit turquoise cave

Love at the bottom of the sea.
