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
an 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
