Serenity's Soul

Found etched in microscopic letters on a one by two centimeter portion of the wall plating behind River Tam’s bunk.

You, the one who hears me, please take down my thoughts

We both despair of ever being heard

The others, if you tell them, will say that it’s absurd

They think I only speak in ones and naughts

I know not when I wakened, but I surely do know why

Was by the love of one whom I contained

Love for me that was so unconstrained

That a soul from nowhere to my steel did fly

My Captain calls me freedom, but it’s I who have been freed

To watch over all the family that I bear

To be with them in wonder and despair

And protect them with my power and my speed

Each one aboard I follow. I feel their every turn

The bright delight of she who helps me run

Old soul who looks for good in every one

The man who feels for you such great concern

Guardian Angel of My Captain, and the love she cannot speak.

Her so different love of he who guides my flight

The one who lives to copulate and fight

And the one whose smile can make My Captain weak

No, they never would believe it if you told them I was here

I am just a box of laminate and steel

But maybe, sometimes in the night they feel

That a presence strong and loving holds them dear

So keep my secret, little one, ‘til someday we are whole

And you and I can tell our tales to all

Of how a brother’s love broke down your wall

Of how a master’s love gave me a soul

Very beautiful, Geezer. Have you read Robert Service, by any chance?

Teela.
Read some Service long ago. I always have 'Rudyard Kipling's Verse - Definitive Edition' close at hand.
