His Whispers Live in My Heart
I ponder about so many hearts---calling out---from their watery graves.
Poseidon the Greek God of the sea,
I called to him---many times---bring my Darling Pirate back to me.
You do not need him in your salty waters,
Find other pirates for your saline daughters.
His ship is named after me---Dark Lady---solid vessel of beauty,
And dark because I am sad when he leaves me---for his duty.
Time has gone now---past any family we could create,
Forsaking other men---I still wait.
A hopeless dreamer I am told,
Speaks the uncouth but---extremely bold.
His voice has not faded with the years,
Memories of his dark eyes that shined with love--- brings many tears.
My fingers desire to touch---his masterful lips,
That captured mine---so sweetly—my heart now rips.
Imprinted memories of his arms so strong around my soft frame,
My body recalls the feelings---without shame.
When the lightning strikes over the sea at night,
I can see the Dark Lady riding the waves--- until it is daylight.
I beckon Poseidon to send you to me---for I am very ill,
On this turbulent night---I stand and plead from the highest hill.
And through the breakers appears a sail---with a black flag,
Whipping in the storm---it appeared to be just a rag.
The closer it came---I could see the words---Dark Lady,
Could it be My Darling in the moonlight---just maybe?
His whispers from my heart were loud and clear,
I have come for you---my Sweetheart---my Dear.
My spirit left my old body---I no longer needed---lying
on the foam-covered salty rocks,
My spirit is young and beautiful now---minus all time clocks.
Life is worth living now with my Pirate and me,
Happily we sail---the now tranquil---turquoise sea.
I thanked Poseidon when I saw him years later upon his oceans,
He bowed and waved so full of his own emotions.
My Darling Pirate is by my side,
To kiss and hold me, I am his pride.
Never give up I am thinking,
Watch for your lighthouse---it could be blinking,
To let you know a love is coming---it is not winking.
