by Mario William Vitale

Bridges bend their backs for me;
Rivers call my name;
Waters in my dreams at night
Drown out my earthly pain

Roots of trees entangle me,
Their fingers take my breath;
Darkened whirls of hours wash by,
Wringing me to death

Life's been for me a battle
And if water is its end
When your hand has pulled me from the depths
Oh please, Lord call me friend.
