Beautiful vessel
He once captained her
Proud to steer her
Ploughing through
Calm waters
Riding the waves
Her destiny in his hands
Surviving storms
For a while, but
Thrash after thrash
She weathered
Sadness overcame him
Knowing he couldn’t
Keep her forever
He had sailed with her
As far as he could go
Slowly, he tore himself
Away, let her drift
Lacking the love of her captain,
She sank, a dreary vision
Of what once was
She lived in his memory
