Inhaling the Blue

As you sank to sea

I reached out for you

When you took my hand

I inhaled the blue

From the weeping soul

Deep inside your chest

And I held it in

Because I loved you best


So I held your love

Instead of holding you

‘Neath the swirling waves

Of your endless blue

You reached out your hand

And I reached out mine

Then I pulled away

In the nick of time


For so many years

I tried to rise above

The rushing waves

Of your endless love

As I tried to bring

Your sweet lips to mine

I inhaled your sea

And its salty brine

When I asked God

To lead me straight to you

I had no idea

That you’d drown me too
