A mermaid whisper

A mermaid whisper

She said, " be mine"
From today moving forward
Let me see you everyday at dawn
May your face be a fresh imprint at dusk
Whisper words that revive me
Messages that hold the beating of my heart
Let me know you will be there always
In the yonder, in the years to come

"I am yours," kneeling he said
It's a promise I give
Old as time and ageless as life
I want you here in my life
In the daily chores of my existence
When I am hopeless and despaired
When I am restless, be my anchor
And I will be all the music your heart desires
I will be a slave to your love
I will secure you from raging storms
Keep you in my love always
And in return...be mine

Be mine now
When all I have to offer is my heart
When with its every beat
Memories of the future flood my mind
When with its every beat
Our lives are forever intertwined
In a strong timeless embrace 

I am yours now
When all I can give is my love
When my life becomes a rythmn with yours
When I feel lost and distraught,
enveloped by strong emotions of dread
When anxiety gnarls at my being
The minute you are not near
Be the beat that keeps my tempo
Be the rhythm to which my heart dances

Be mine now till forever
Let me be yours always
Now, when all we have is each other
When i hold you close
And you keep me in rhythm
With the beat of your heart 
Now when forever is waiting
To the endless abyss of time
