An unusual affair
 
Glassy still motionless it would seem
Hazy disturbance enfolding me
Silently staring at the horizon
Nervously waiting the sun rising
Vigilant for you to reappear
 
Woke early and you already gone
followed your footprints right to the surf
Why do you leave so early our bed
Slipping away from our warm embrace
as quietly each day you disappear
 
I would swear, if not to the ocean,
you could be dabbling in an affair!
Into the early dawn you abscond
Yet now I see there is no one else
Save a few soaring seagulls and me
 
Stillness departs the ocean explodes
Surprising from beneath the water
An enormous fish in front of me
Azure blue purple green shimmering
Splashing twirling suddenly you’re here!
 
Wishing now I had not followed you
As who could compete at this beauty
Astounding vision dazzling creature
It’s a mermaid you are caressing!
oblivious to my presence here
 
My departing footprints in the sand
to you acknowledge your freedom won
to settle beneath the depths of the sea
And this fairytale will one day be
for the growing baby inside me
