June Mermaid


In the cold silence

Gently shivering light.

Fading ripples spread

Slowly out of sight.


One girl

Alone in the dark

Eyes a haze of blue

Echoes of the past

Within the mists

No other sound is heard.

Lingering emotions of distant sorrow

Eyes of sadness and the tears that follow.


Don't you remember?

That girl in the mists.

Was it all a dream

You somehow missed?

That night was long

Alone she still sits

Waiting, still waiting

For dawn to break.


Petty love

So bittersweet

That one girl

You chanced to meet

What was the cause?

Why did you leave?

The lost hope

You failed to see.


Gone to a place far away

Forever waiting for you

To come back someday.
