If the world has to end someday

I hope she finds her place under water

As the sweet waves take over

And deep she goes into a dark oblivion.

.

For if she ended in fire

She maybe cleansed to say

But the red molten mass that she’d be

She may never be revived again.

.

For if she ended in the ice

The beauty of her will survive

Preserved, but the warmth that she holds

For the ones which are living, will go.

.

But the water will soothe the burn

The warmth will someday return

The water will caress her curves

And tend to the wounds we gave.

.

Into the water, if she will go,

She will find a beautiful place

Maybe not as good as the bright sun

But water will bring her solace.

.

Looking at the ocean for the first time in cognitive memory, the soft solace that it brought, it felt like a beautiful resting place for a beautiful forever.

Love,
