Ships On a Westward Tide

Ships On a Westward Tide

A Poem by OctoberDawn
"

You only live once, adventure calls if you listen close.

"
An urging echoes still within mine ears,
It rises above the horizon as dusk falls.
It sings of salvation, effacing my fears.
It persists still; with a steady voice it calls.

There I see, on the horizon,
The silhouettes aloft.
The white tides soft,
Carry them home.

One day soon my ship will come in to board,
And I will think of the world that I leave.
Away from my failures, the west I sail toward. 
No soul will know of my journey, no teary eyes grieve.

And there I'll see, from the horizon,
The silhouettes atop.
The fading dock,
ushers me home.
