One step forward
Loose cliff siding chips off ledge
One step in reverse
Taste the knife’s searing edge
Stare below and over
The vast expanse of water
Your safe haven, your yearning
The violent waves are calling

Shaking limbs and eyes raised
To the sky, to death’s cold embrace
Where lies your daughter, husband, friend
His warm invite draws you to his foreboding place
How wonderful it’d be to fly
Open your soul before you die
And opened for you waits the sea
So jump and soar and yell and laugh, free

From mountainside to cerulean home
The doors close over you in churning foam
