I drift a solitary sea
No other ships on the horizon
Time has forgotten me
My soul becomes wizened.
I hardly remember the day
The gull left my stern
Or the dolphin
And which way he swam before I learned
That a storm was rolling in,
Black clouds covered the night
Soon after, the rain began
Furious with all its might.

Waves threatened to capsize,
I bailed with a fury
And even though I tried
I couldn't help but worry
What would become of me?
Would I make it through the night?
In my moment of agony
I saw the guiding light.
I made it through that gale
I will make it through the next
Sun-weathered and wind pale
Life over death is best.

A moving peace of work, Genea. I love the hope that comes from it. Thank you for sharing.
