The Dark and Lovely Sea

The Dark and Lovely Sea

I hear your voice deep inside of me

The distance between us is but a dream

I long to fall into you

Like the river seeking the sea

To melt into you and you into me

And endless merging I will climb into you

And you will sink and sink eternally

Into the depths of me

Inside the tumult of this storm

The ripples rise and fall

And we are floating endlessly

In the underlying currents

But when we are falling together

We have gone beyond

Beyond holding and releasing

And beyond the things of dust and air

In this there is a stillness of lasting memory

And it fills us up as we sink as one

Into the dark and lovely sea
