The Ship that Sails Along the Florida Coast
Waves crash against the sandy shore. Tide is high.
A lonely seagull wanders along the water's edge,
searching for a long lost friend.
I look out into the surf, the vast
mast in the distance resembles
the pearly clouds of Heaven.
A ship is sighted just beyond the horizon,
that sails in the cool, midnight ocean breeze.
The bow is decorated, a gallant facade.
A true treasure of the tempting seas.
A ship in the sea, is a man's true, passionate love.
He remembers the time they have shared together,
gentle and beautiful, with the grace of a dove.
He is the captain, the ocean his mistress,
they dance together nightly, morning within the distance.
Soon the ships draws near,
the man returns to his somber pier.
