I Took a Trip

Once, a long time before you were here, I took a trip. A sail boat took me to a distant shore and I saw a reflection of my soul in the ocean at that far away port.

My heart leapt with joy and my eyes brimmed with tears, but the longing, the heart-rending longing has never left me.

Sleep brings me closer and waking is torment, but someday this journey will end and I will sail again to that distant shore, and my soul and I shall never part company again.
