Take A Plunge

The water will hurt me
The cold shall run deep
Piercing like shattered glasses
But not deep -

-I must jump
I feel it within to go
I and the sea are one
And such spirit will not let go
Unless I learn to jump

I fear the tides,
The waves riveting past
It is big... It may take me whole
But he and I are one
And such spirit shall never let go
Unless I choose to jump

The icy, icy water may hurt me
The cold indeed runs deep
But he, the sea, and I are one
And my spirit shall never learn to let go
Unless I jump

Even then I'll fly and glide
He and I will never choose to let go
Even now as I jump
Past the tides, the waves
And even past he
