Drifting from where I came
I kept my eyes to the sky.
Staring up, feeling my eyes begin to tremble
Frigid, icy, freezing water carried me
Thoughts of home
Thoughts of life
Flashing, fading, with each passing second
Hope began to fade as well
Closing my eyes
The thin stream of life began to sever
But a warm bind enveloped it
Repaired it, held it, embraced it
And from the frozen water I left
The awakening was divine
Staring at a goddess in draped shadows
With a smile, I was saved.
My heart continued to beat
And my soul continued to live.
