The darkest waves of the sea

The darkest waves of the sea Rock the baby off to sleep Ice cold arrows in the breeze Too many, too early, death does reap Six feet under, there does lie Its mother’s life it now warps Beneath a deep- water blue sky An infant's cold cold corpse None are left, there to save So she runs, and quietly hopes For that same- early grave Or a gift- of necklace ropes On another- befaten day Alone she was cursed, alone she falls A barren mother far away Forced to follow her chil’s calls Her baby’s body laced with tears Salty water, its reside Cold dead gaze, cloudy mirrors Mother’s corpse right beside Their spirits, though now roaming Are still trapped beneath the sea Mother crying, child moaning They only yearn to be free Slowly slowly they begin to rise Maggots, under skin are lurking Face of horror, light blue eyes Nature’s cruelty on and working Far above, the sky shines bright Those alive still do play None have seen the terrible sight Hoping for eternal day

Today I am moved. The beauty of the sea left beconning to the land awash. A mother's burden.
