In the still of the night

From the deep blue stillness
you call to us;
your voice echoing across the water
that joins us,
earth to sky.
Your beacon of sound
shines across the silver sea
guiding us homeward.

I hesitate to set out
in this tippy boat,
yet know I have neither the courage to dive
nor the strength to swim.

Have patience with me as I sit
paralyzed with longing.
