A Passing Ship In the Night

image

I saw a passing ship
During my midnight hour
It seemed to freely move
Away from where I’m docked
Locked down by ties that bind

I yearn to go aboard
For it to take me away
For there perhaps I’ll chance
Upon my delayed desires
Which time and tide forgot

To go I can’t, for bound I am
By vows I must not break
So here I stand unmoving
Both night and day unmoving
While yet another ship sails away
Away with my hopes and dreams

  1. Hi,

    This is beautiful and the message is so poignant and clear to me. How many times do we yearn to move on but are held back because of vows and promises that we’ve given that must be respected and not broken.

    Trust comes in knowing that the respect given to what you stand for will also materialize your the desires of your heart as you walk in faith that your day will come. Thus your last verse,

    To go I can’t, for bound I am
    By vows I must not break
    So here I stand unmoving
    Both night and day unmoving
    While yet another ship sails away
    Away with my hopes and dreams,

    mirrors my own desire to one day be able to walk into my boat and sail away living my hopes and dreams.

    Thanks for the encouragement. You touched my soul.

    Shalom,
    Patricia
