    Swaying, rocking
    and the breeze in my hair,
    leading me to the place
    I long for.
    It calls for me,
    caresses my skin,
    bringing my hopes up.
    We slow down,
    but my heart starts racing.
    I am going to down.
    I pull on my gear
    and smile through my reg
    cause the men all think I'm crazy.
    I step to the ledge
    look at the sea
    and know that I am home.
    Taking my stride
    I drop like a rock
    then I pop to the top
    and wait for my buddy.
    He doesn't know
    that he is keeping me
    from a peace that I can't explain.
    We descend together
    I know he is there,
    but I am looking for something else
    The water gets cooler
    as I slowly make my way down.
    I look back to make sure
    that I have not lost him.
    He knows that he
    should just follow.
    I can just make out his bubbles
    so I wait.
    5 more feet
    I feel it calling.
    4 more
    I hear my name
    3
    I can see it beckon
    2
    can almost touch it
    1
    I am there.
    Who could have known?
    I didn't know.
    That it would take me
    going 50 feet below the surface
    to feel like I was in heaven.
