A Mermaid’s Funeral

She lied motionless
Covered by stillness
No sound could be heard
But this faint flutter of this bird
A nightingale
The only living witness of this funeral tale
A half floating board of combined shells
Was ready to carry her tiny body to where she would eventually dwell
Small colored fish were restlessly hovering beneath this board
Making meaningless circles indicating how much she was adored
The waves were competing to bid her still body the last good-bye
Hopelessly trying to resurrect her, and death defy
The night was getting brighter because of the coming stars
That sent their tears to form around her light bars
A trembling half moon stood at the sky corner alone
Trying to silence her ascending cries and moan.
She was resting with no movement but this soft sway
Caused by the waves begging her to stay
Her eyes were closed, however one could them read
And see through her, see that need
For someone she kept wandering the seas for
Not knowing that she would find emptiness and nothing more
One could see these shining tears beneath her closed eyes
And hear her imprisoned cries
Behind this soft surrendering smile
That one could imagine it was moving for a while
Her long dark hair formed an aura around her
Helplessly moving with the board but a quiff that did refer
To that sea star resting upon her chest
Feeling happy coz it would upon her forever rest.
The board started moving carrying sea’s mistress
Nothing could these desperate cries and agony calls suppress
The moon shone brighter trying to tempt her to get back to life
Waves were pulling and pushing the board in a bitter strife
Stars formed a huge M letter that brightened the night
But she was moving out of sight
Then the nightingale flew near her face
And kissed her fair forehead in grace
And shed a tear that fell upon her lips
To turn into a pearl that could tell scripts
Of a restless wandering heart
That would soon depart.
Not very far away, the board stopped
Unnoticed, inside her mouth the pearl dropped
She turned into millions of sliver blue rays
Penetrating that heavy sad haze
Touching every element that was there
Filling them with love and care
Drawing a smile in their souls
Filling their inner holes
Leaving them with the same happiness
And bless
That her presence used to bring
That made the nightingale sing
The stars and moon jest
And all was blessed.
Then it was time
To disappear in that non-existence sublime
Caressed with affection
She turned into a reflection
Of hopes and dreams
And love gleams.
