Remember Me

I have seen angels hover around the dying
Bestowing graces galore
As the river passes the Elm of False Dreams
Hold fast your coin and your oar
Spit the entrance fee
Into the faces of Grief and Old Age
Float free from the binds of Agony
Before the concrete and the familiar fade –
Remember me, remember me
Stand on the shoreline
With your back against the deep
The lovely, dark, and deep
And remember me, remember me
Let go all promises, true loves and deeds
And when I follow
Remember me

Water

Cool water, deep water, sweet water
Refuge from all troubles water
Clear water, calm water
Mirror of Narcissus water

From the river’s edge she saunters
Then rushes back to gape again
One pebble creates mad disorder
Ten pebbles and she’s declared insane

Murky green salt water
Past the foam and waves she wanders
Heeding the call of the bogus Sirens
Toward the distant, elusive horizon

(Alternate ending – Feel free to comment which one you like better.):

Murky green salt water
Past the foam and waves she wanders
Heeding the call of the bogus Sirens
To slay the mighty and merciless Poseidon
