Submerged (as suggested by Christopher)

Water, water everywhere

In the ears and between the toes

Swirling past on currents cold,

Tangling hair and stretching hopes.

 

Blood beats a rhythm from the heart,

As one becomes re-energised

Humans are 70 percent water, so they say,

So why do people drown?

 

A glass of water please, m’dear

For dehydration is not healthy

Yet ask yourself, how many people

Would rather drink a coke?

 

Bubbles escape up to the surface,

As you lie there in the bath

Small wavelets gently lap,

Lulling you to sleep.

 

Water on the Earth,

Water in the air,

Bodies full of water,

We are all

 

Submerged.
