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

    I guess sometimes storms make the bonds go stronger, and sometimes they do not…

    I like the metaphor of comparing relationships to voyages.

  5. It’s all we really have, a journey, life never ends. Beautiful words, feeling and spirit.

  6. You juggle not missing the boat and missing the boat so very well!
