The Dolphin And The Diver - Poem by Stephen Katona
I am diving when a dolphin swims by,
I hold my breath until I sigh,
I cannot believe she is so near,
Looking at me with no fear.
She lets me touch her side,
How beautiful she does glide.
I see her eye watching me.
She's found a friend in this great sea.
Fishing line trails from her fin,
To leave now would be a sin.
In her eye I sense her trust,
The urge to help her is a must.
So still she is during her wait,
In my hands lies her fate.
My fingers weak I tug in vain,
I cry inside and feel her pain.
I take out my knife
To save her life.
And hope it will not scare,
Moving quickly as I dare.
She must see the knife so cold,
And in its steel a fear so old.
I free her to my great relief,
To let her roam among the reef.
She races up far above,
Flying like a graceful dove.
For air she needs to breathe.
She didn't really want to leave.
Back she comes to say thank you,
And in my heart I love her too.
Our time together was a gift,
That gives my soul a lift.
When days are threatened by sorrow,
I swim with her for all tomorrow.
