Rik Bertrand (18 April 1959 / Portland, Oregon)
Walking along the beaches shore, water lapping atmy feet,
I came across a beautiful site, a mermaid I did meet.
As I looked up she was standing there, propped up by her tail,
Such an amzazing site to see, I thought I was under a spell.
This beauty called out my name and raised her arms up high,
I was moved and attracted to her, of this I could not deny.
Her elegence and her prose, were like an invisible magnet,
I wanted her to be part of me, and of these thoughts I had no regret.
She wrapped her arms around and I felt her loving heart,
I was surrounded by incredible feelings, I did not ever want to part.
We took each others hand and began walking into the sea,
Where we could be together, and our love could be set free.
Mermaid blessing changed my being, i am now of land and sea,
But my mermaid love, is not like me, for the water she must breathe
I stay with her because my love is true, for without her I am without heart.
We swim the seas, and love our lives, and we shall never part.
