Far away land

Life was beginning to ebb away

Like a bruised & shrivelled leaf

She felt herself gradually sinking

Down into the mysterious deep


She struggled to swim to the surface

Fighting for every breath

Battling to reach the earthly shore

And fight the demon called death


The tide kept dragging her down

She could no longer see or speak

Her body and soul were detaching

Her breath grew shallow and weak


Suddenly a shimmering mermaid appeared

And stretched out a tender hand

She smiled from deep within her being

As they floated to a far away land


An endless rainbow caresses the shore

It grows more magnificent by the day

Crafted from exquisite seashells

Its true essence is here to stay
