Beneath the Water Drowning

Written by: Uwe Stroh

I guess we'll never know

if you found peace

or if the answers came

to you somehow


In the turmoil

of your life' passion

you encountered confusing contradictions

when you needed compassion


Your struggle against the flow

estranged you

to your loved ones 

you thought your

husband was a foe


I'd like to know

what you were thinking

what drove you to the point

of jumping in

after a bout of heavy drinking 


The creative gene you possessed

is in me now and I thank you

for allowing me to have it 

my dream is that in

the afterlife I'll see you


Until then I guess

we'll never know

if beneath the waters

you found what you

were looking for.
