I drifted astray as a sail lost at sea
That once navigated by a fine light,
When all at once rough waters hit,
Damaging a light once bright,
Now surrounded by a sea dim lit,
I struggle to hold onto my loved one,
Going from days of laughter to a state of stun.
I stand gazing up at blotches of gray,
Stuck in an endless sea of woes and no’s,
Pondering on the universe and it’s wayward way,
Watching it take some in and let others go,
Now I seek nothing but a safe haven,
For after a fall you must reawaken.
