A Pirate’s Musing

During that most tumultuous of times, forgot to mention how confused I was, as you sailed with me; far out to sea…

The ship it seems, had splinters in the mast…sails were torn…

But you had faith; a compass and a dream,

While I, steering the rudder; navigated slowly, toward  safe port.

We tied to the dock, but stayed aboard…

Till finally…begrudgingly…you disembarked

“I’ll be back!” I called, over and over…

As the ship sailed off…my words grew faint…and the ship sailed on…

Through fierce storms and pirates…finally…

…the voyage was complete.

Time for ship to come back to shore…

Triumphantly…to rescue the princess…

Who waited…no more…
