The Seafarer

The Seafarer

A Poem by Aidan

A personal favorite.


Like the boundless sea,

you ebb and flow within me

You are a great wave crashing,

a mighty current pushing and pulling me where you will 

As both a gentle breeze and a strong tailwind 

you fill my sails through smooth waters and stormy seas 

When there is nothing but fog and mist to be seen,

you shine for me a guiding lighthouse beam

I would gladly be caught up in your nets,

dragged up from the sandy bottom to see the light of day.
