The Wind

The wind behind my words
is not enough I fear
to sail me safely through this goodbye
and guide you to happy ports
where friendship docks
among ships of opportunity
set sail long ago
from home’s safe haven

The wind behind my love
is not enough I fear
to sail you through
your new life
and bring you safely to rest
on your journey through time

The wind behind
your memory
I pray
is enough to quell the storms
gently steer you
through craggy cliffs
and slippery sands
til you alight on
shores of dreams
born of blue skies
silky smooth waters
and the love behind my words
