WQW #21: Water Fun in the Sun

early morning swim

like singing a hymn

just the sound of the water

with its gentle waves

everything behaves

a day that will be hotter*

Unraveling what’s under the sea

On their honeymoon full of glee

Diving, snorkelling they both agree

Fish undersea, fish undersea

Language of love so powerful

Just the two of them, colourful

Eating, sleeping, all wonderful

So beautiful, so beautiful

Under the sea and its treasure

They take their time at their leisure

See corals and fish with pleasure

Glorious weather, glorious weather**

A lingering look towards the sea

My heart hoping to see the ship

My captain coming to rescue me

My legs carried me in the strip

With stretched arms waiting to be hugged

My heart hoping to see the ship

Since we were young I was always thugged

Instead the rain comes and I’m drenched

With stretched arms waiting to be hugged

A thirst that can never be quenched

Rocking my whole being with hope

Instead the rain comes and I’m drenched

The door to my heart’s there to cope

As narrow as the strip I wait

Rocking my whole being with hope

Now the passage being very strait

A lingering look towards the sea

Here I am waiting for our fate

My captain coming to rescue me***
