I saw it last night

It was almost real

It flickered and danced

On a salty ships wheel

But it couldn't last

It was not the right time

How can it be yours

When it begs to be mine

It slipped through my fingers

It fell to the floor

I dropped to my knees

Bowed my head once more


  • Bibbeck

    Very good write. There is hope!

  • Augustus

    Especially on a ship we need hope. So evasive at times. Well done.

  • swingline

    Hope eternal , on your knees you prayed . Why yes said the Lord , we have loads .
