Sailing Over Night

Photo by Marek Piwnicki on

Faith is drowning in distraction

your doubtful eyes

focus only on what they can see

and overlook the hints of light

that give away the secret

of a morning about to rise

as the wild horses of wind are dragging us over

the water and the night

hope is sinking in a sea of despondency

my broken heart beats

out the rhythm of memories

trying to overpower the melody of a future

about to come

even as we pass that old lighthouse

pointing to a place long forgotten


the harbour we used to dock in

is that where you are sailing

is that really where my boat is turning

I believe


I believe

the clouds are changing

into the clothes of dawn
