Message In A Bottle - Poem by Billy Loving

Floating with the tide
On a sea of water it does ride
Crashing on the beach
From a distance shore it does reach

Lying in the sand
As I grasp it in my hand
A solitary paper encased
With such care it was placed

Freeing it from it's raft
A few words written with such craft
Authored long ago
No origin does it show

Many years ago I died
My message on the sea it will ride
In the ground, I will lay
As this letter goes about it's way
No need to mourn for me
A life as complete as can be
On this chapter, the Lord has closed the curtain
A place in heaven, of that I am certain
I just wanted to take the time to wish you all the best
And say a prayer that your life is blessed
So I bid my adieu
Enjoy the days of your life, for they are truly so few
