Safe In My Keep

Distant horizons have beckoned, and
I stretch out my arms to meet them.
I’ve imagined the places that
I’d like to visit while
Pushing this boat on my own.

In the gloom I’ve laid quietly useless, and
In splendor I’m blinded and numb.
The second hand ticking is my only gauge of
How steadily I’m coming along.

Shooting through the airwaves are the
Noises of life
Bouncing off me and the stars in the sky, and
I hold still as I float and dream,
My memories safe in my keep.

The world’s crowded shores are ailing from
Hatred and envy... or that’s how it seems.
It’s been so long since I’ve said to you
“I’m coming home,”
While pushing this boat on my own.

Shooting through the airwaves are the
Noises of life
Bouncing off me and the stars in the sky, and
I hold still as I float and dream,
My memories safe in my keep.
