Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Heaven's Sail
 
~~~
A gentle breeze was drifting softly
cooling sand
beside the sea

The shoreline cast with countless lore
its bounty
shared for free

An essence
smiled upon the wind
with pleasant times gone by
and spoke
of treasured times he shared
as visions
blurred his eye

~

A tingle on his lonesome lips
a tear
mixed with a sigh

The cadence of a crashing wave
co-mingle
with a cry

The pangs of love grew stronger still
with every passing thought

They'd be together
soon
he promised
on a ship
that sails aloft

~

Another grain of sand
sublime
with walking stick
at ready

His footprints
if you looked behind
showed more sets
there
to steady

A loyal friend
stayed at his side
and ran
to fetch a stick

To fetch a smile from ones he loved
he'd do most any trick

~

At dawn's first light
he met a boy
with fishing pole
and bait

They reminisced
and spun some yarns
he talked about his fate

His heart was fading ...
borrowed time
he spoke of home with sacred grace

The boy had been there many times
a gorgeous cliff
above this place

~

His legs were failing
heart too frail
the boy
packed up his gear

Arm in arm
they slowly climbed
a path to yesteryear

His little dog was first atop
a stick still clutched to play

The rising sun on golden dew
sent mist to greet the day

~

Near the edge
'neath shaded tree
they stopped to catch their breath

His finger traced its trunk
in trance
the boy and dog
played fetch

The crash of surf
and seabird's song
were echoed through the years

The freshest air from heaven's sigh
inhaled...
he shed his fears

~

A rolling mist rose up from sea
and hovered on the brink

A loving voice
called out to him

... the boy knew not what to think ...

When fingers touched
he stepped aboard
a ship of floating cloud

He turned and raised his hand
and smiled
'Please love our little dog'

~

The ship rose up on gentle breeze
they waved
it passed so frail

They'll be together always now
on a ship
with heaven's sail

~

I was that boy so long ago
it seems like reverie

But if so ...

then where'd I get the dog
and
whose initials
are in this tree?
