Swim For Your Life in Me

~ for M.B. ~

Run to me, oh spotted fawn
His raging alcoholic inferno
Destroying your soul for ages
Is behind you now

Sparks still chase
Popping and hissing after you
You’ve been running, exhausted
Trapped, frightened, confused
Escaping your living nightmare
But fear not, don’t look back
Now you are free!

Come drink of my cool waters
I’ll soothe your body
Calm your mind
Nourish your soul

Gaze into my shimmering surface
While I reflect your beauty
While I introduce you to yourself, and then

Plunge into my tender embrace
Swim in me, splash in me, float upon me
I’ll carry you now, as you heal into
Lightness, wholeness, and peace

I’ve been here along
A happier life awaits you

– Paul Raworth Bennett
