I wondered if I’d die that day,
if I would plummet like a rock.
Nothing like it came to pass
and it rather seemed a shock.
Nothing happened in the wave
the moment timeless grew.
I thought of heaven, thought of hell
and how both were part of you.
The sun and water threatened me
and the fear begin to wane.
But nothing like it came to pass
so I floated timeless like a pane
of glass upon a windless sea.
And if the wave should drown me
it would be because of Thee.
