My Last Repent
Silver waters let me lie afloat you
as I allow your saturation to clothe my naked flesh.
Pull away the hair from my eyes,
so that I may see the stars above me.
Calm your motion around me
and allow me to meditate in still of night.
Sustain me for just one moment
as I reflect on my blessings and curses.
Hold me up with your sea of strength, as I look to the heavens above
and offer up my plea of repentance for what I've done and
allow the bitter of my tears to add to your dazzling power.
Before washing away my sorrows
so that I will not be found with tear-stained eyes,
I ask that you permit one last repent
for what I am about to do.
My battles of good and evil have weakened my flesh,
forced me to lie upon you and be taken deep into your watery grave,
so that I can sin no more.
I readily sacrifice my body to the deep
and trust my soul be saved
from the demons that haunt it.
