The Lady in the Water

The Lady in the Water

A Poem by I Cast a Shadow

Alone I sat; looked up and said

There no one here �" I must be dead

Then She came; and She was here

I knew Her being stole my fear

She swam in a sea of Death ‘n Doubt

While I watched from the port of my faithful boat

My Lantern was lit with a dim, warm, glow

That shown her flesh and it was so

Beautiful t’me alone t’view

I held out my hand �" I thought she knew

That I could give her the warmth I held

She held out Hers and cast a spell

My ship shook vi’lent �" and I fell

I sunk down into her doubtful well

My light staid �" and she swam close

And together we swam down from the coast

We never parted because she knew

The light I cast was what she never knew.
