Jeffrey Markle


As I ponder


As I ponder what happened
Between two souls, like ships
That seeemed so alike
But yet were different

One with its anchor firmly planted
Knowing this was the port where it was secure
The other with its sails cast to the wind
Ready for new ports to call on

The anchored ship was hoping to sail together
The other left before first light
Not caring where tomorrow left the other
nor if it sunk in the middle of night

The two may sail togrther again
The hope is always there
They will have to be going the same
All they have to do is care
