Sailor on the Open Sea

April 29, 2008

Sailor on the open sea

do you know where you embark?
Through the waves in shades of green.

Rocking in your wooden ark.

Salty eyes tell the tale

of a home so far away.

Where in an inn you drink your ale,
and bring back feelings once astray.
No lover shall your hardened heart

ever get to hold.
For even as you drift through time

growing gray and old.
Love to you shall reveal itself as a mockery.
For the only lover that you have is

the open sea.
