    If I should die beneath the sea --
    What e'er the circumstance may be --
    I only ask that you not cry
    For such a lucky one as I.

    But, rather, weep for those alive
    Who know not what it is to dive
    Into the planet's liquid heart
    And of God's ocean be a part.

    For even Christ must envy all
    Who stroll along the ocean's wall;
    Though wind and sea His will obeys,
    He only walked upon the waves.

    And may I ask for one thing more?
    A simple cross beside the shore.
    Below my name inscribe for me:
    Lost to the earth, but found at sea.

    Lovely post!

    It must appeal to most divers.

    That's a great poem. I was on a dive with a bunch of SBers at Anacapa, one of the Channel Islands off the coast of Southern California. We ran across a memorial plaque for a diver, placed inconspicuously on a rocky reef. It says, "T. Meloche, 1953-2002, Dive Forever". We're trying to figure out the story behind it.
