a sail on life’s ocean
fine boat, afloat
clear blue waters
quiet, glass like
never dream of
storm clouds, wind loud
turning, churning
sinking down
deep
down deep
down deep
to the deep end

the call comes to all
sometime, real time
no one is untouched
unscathed, escaped
just when it looks clear
waves rise, sky high
around, surround
pulling down
deep
down deep
down deep
to the deep end

all dark, pressure thick
no light, no sight
black inky waters
silent, grave like
no current flows
doldrums, ho-hums
noiseless, soundless
sucking down
deep
down deep
down deep
to the deep end

To the deep end
down deep
down deep
deep
fathomless deep
contains Light, Life
a Voice …

Sink into My arms
Everlasting, Never Failing
As sure as the sunrise
Faithful, Loyal
True Life, True Light
Shining down
deep
down deep
down deep
to the deep end

On the surface storms brew
Wild, wooly, often cruelly
Tempestuous gales
Reeling, twirling
Cannot reach
Farthest down
deep
down deep
down deep
to the deep end

Abide in Me, I in you
Grounded, founded
Secure in My Love
Firmly rooted, unmoved
You hear You see
You know Me down
deep
down deep
down deep
to the deep end

There is something a little mystical in this poem. The deep end is contrasted with light and life against the darkness of the doldrums. God gives us light and life to bring us out of the darkness into His marvelous light.
