Shanty....a song sung by sailors


To my beautiful friend

O my dearest friend,
your pain is unbearable to witness
Scribing plagued shades of anguish across your smooth skin,
once so dewy with content

Your head fits in my shoulder's nook
where once my cheek pillowed my babes' freshly bathed heads
Love is love after all
You do not deserve my words so awkwardly offered

So let your tears release
They do no favours when kept closeted
And tho it's seems your storm door is broken
And the flood permeates every aspect

The calm is coming
Grab your oar
Set the sail
Pitch the shanty.
