Sea of Love



~~~

As the adventurers in stories of old

Setting out upon the vast blue seas

To seek the new, so brave and bold

We set loving sail and so went we

~~~

Uncharted course to far off lands

With the promise of fair blue skies

Sailored vows said while holding hands

And want for what beyond horizon lies

~~~

But every voyage has its storms

When the wind and the gales hard blow

There tossed by the clouds that form

Our future we cannot ready know

~~~

And after many leagues had passed

With the wave and wind beating hull

We found that our ship could not last

And we put in for a port of call

~~~

No longer could she stay afloat

Holes had riddled her to death

Looking upon our little love boat

It was clear she had nothing left

~~~

So, part we did upon new shores

With hopes you’d find your island true

Now marooned, I am still thankful for

This moment to explore with you

~~~

    It’s mind-blowing to think about how different the world was pre-GPS and the amount of courage the early explorers had to possess.
