oceans rise

Walking on the coast
Mom loved
Treading
Don’t drown
She was always so scared
Of rising waters
Snakes that hiss

And

And I promised
I will walk home with you
That you won’t end here
I will stay
And we
We will go home
Together

The beeping beating heart
Stops
It stopped

She never got to walk
Home
Again

And
And I dreamt for what seemed
A lifetime
Of warmth
The color of red
And carrying her with me
Her home
Everywhere
I carry her
I walk with her

In my heart.
