And as I

Knew you responded

For my cry

For help chasing

Me down the

Beach as I

Was caught in

Life’s rip tide

Hollering here swim

Here to me

Flailing and tired

I followed your

Voice like a

Retriever following the

Splash here over

Here to me

I heard again

And again at

Last breaking free

And into the

Water of hopelessness

You ran grabbing

Me and pulling

Me into the

Safety of arms
