TWO SEAS MEET
And then we came to the place
Where the two seas meet,
With nothing but God and each other:
There our lives were a mirror
To each other, and yet it was
All that we had ever wanted.
I had never seen her dance
And twerk her apple bottoms,
I had thought her fake and private,
And penned a song "dance with me"
Then at that junction
She relieved herself of burdens:
She was nothing but a beautiful babe,
And in that garden, her honey skin
Was refined to rare gold,
You would think her not human,
And could hurt at a single touch.
And yet God had taken us that far
When He had caused us
To retrace our steps back to the place
Where we had lost our fish
When they slipped into the sea
In a very swiftly surprising way,
We had been careless of love,
And even then we could not care more,
With God in control.
