Eternal Flame in Sea

there is not a tear that you shed that does not also fall upon my cheek
shadows that grow before me are rooted in the sunshine that you seek
do not fear your droning pain that transpires beneath the day’s light
for all that is dark will quickly scurry away into sorry hate and spite
where no fish can swim, where no bird may fly, no heart remaining thrive
O it was your heart I saw it first in song and then beneath the starry sky
even before you I saw its beauty and I also saw sad pools drown your eyes
where I was impelled to alight drops of Hope confounding water’s lies
for I know your oceans in the hundred times they nearly drowned me,
yet you fail to see me, eternal flame burning beneath your billowing sea
