Message in the bottle
Nervous fingers, Wrinkled Skin,
there was once a thought that she would win.
In the summer of her time,
there came a man to tell her 'you are mine'.
Sailing on a ship, the seas were rough,
an adventureous journey, fate did bluff,
for a mishap had to happen, off their sight
when the bottle was open, for the night.
The ship Capsized, parted them forever,
As they drowned together,
Her eyes were open in an unknown land,
Where she found herself on the sand.
She searched for him, but in despair,
Life had no remedy to repair,
She stood up and walked on the beach,
A small little bottle did she reach.
She opened the cork, found a paper,
unfolded and found it was a letter,
Tears poured from her eyes,
Perhaps a note left just for her.
Today is looks like its all past,
But for her it was all too fast,
on the bed she does lie,
with a message in the bottle by her side.
