The Sailor Needs To Leave The Harbor

The pathways, the entry and exit of hope,
Continue to baffle, poke and choke us.
The fears, the heat, the cold, the wetness,
Continue to rub against the softness of the skin.

Fear and Love never walk together,
Neither yesterday nor today or ever hereafter;
As hope and retreat are never thought together,
Either trust or faith will ever need a plumber.
For the love, care and share of all together,
The Sailor needs to leave the harbor.

As the ship sails into the sea,
The thunders strike, heavily the droplets fall,
The faint memories make a way through,
Of a man waiting to pick the warm,
Eyes above, arms straight, voice yell,
Of a recipient riding the final bye,
And the world shall not understand, why?
The days dusk, the nights dawn,
The lovely thoughts shade and fade,
The sea suddenly looks stormy and vibrant;
And the sun-lighted pathways dark,
And moon shone nights treacherous.

Eyes are closed, yet they see the light,
Imaginations looked more shiny and bright.

Tears run into shear for love and fear,
As the journey gets adventurous in gear.
Love comes forward for the dispel,
Of fear, that seeks loves repel.
Should the eyes get fraction opened?
Veracity would surely have life opened.

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
