Sail Away, Return

Ah, you had to sail away that day, I know;
I was there at the bay to say fare-thee-well
With all of the others watching you board,
But with no lack of enthusiasm
You granted you would be back,
Yet tears still freely flowed as you set sail
In your great galleon, mighty sea stallion,
Off toward far horizon . . .
Oh, and it has been many long years now
And hear little talk of your return
As people balk at the very notion,
But I know and so I set my eyes each day
Upon the horizon as I meditate at the bay,
And here I’ll stay as this has been my way
For days upon days because I do know
You will show your beautiful face again,
For just as surely as you had to sail away,
So it is as certain that you will return . . .
One day, my Love, one brightly lit day!

  1. This one makes me curious; did the loved one come back? And at the same time, I truly hope he/she does…I love how you can create stories within one poem.

    1. Well, I purposely kind of leave the reader wondering; however, since I’m the one waiting, I truly believe the Beloved will return! πŸ™‚ Thank you once again for your gracious words!

      1. Do I understand correct for you this is about the return of your faith (religiously) ? If so, look inside dear Jonathan, ’cause that love is already within you πŸ˜‰
