Loves vessel

Creaking, leaking bending to natures will.Shivering in a salty spray, praying night gives way to day.

Watch is nearly done, welcoming mornings sun.

This life chose me, loving it’s challenges that set me free.

Indentured to the land I left, filled with the seas welcome breath.

Traceless tracks on wakeless paths, crossing oceans vast.

But for love this vessel founders, built by faith no vessel sounder.

This life chose me, loving it’s challenges that set me free.

Planks linked in hopes grip, flexing through the storms of each trip.

Loves laughter stands against life’s soul crushing gales.

Unfaltering, welcoming all who board, this ship’s true to Faith’s course.

 This life chose me, loving it’s challenges that set me free.
