Still Waters

My whole life long I never knew that half of me was gone,
Until one day I sailed out to the stillest silent sea,
Linger there I did, lazing neath the sun, when by chance I did gaze beneath the boat,
And then did spy my missing half, a-goggling as was I,
Reach down I did into the deep, to draw my half to me,
Reunion’s promise thrilled my heart, and only must I pull.
No easy task I found, he was as strong as I, and thus we struggled until the water writhed.
Finally did my boat capsize, and the waters dragged me down,
Healed and whole, but dead and drowned.
