Embrace Of The Sea

The sun shines down on the mirror above my head.
I float alone beneath,
the rays of the sun unable to reach me.
My arms spread,
my hair flowing with the water,
my eyes open.
Water takes me in its embrace, gently pulling me down.
The light's disappearing.
The mirror is slowly slipping out of my reach.
I start to become part of the sea;
until I can see the sun no more, I surrender to my new home.
My home at the bottom of the sea.
