Sail Away - Poem by Charles Lara

Away on the
ocean of life
we sailed
without canvass
into the glow
of sunset
we watched
yellows turn
to reds
before the final
set of purple
brought moonlight
and a second wind
carried us
further away
from a place
we would
never see again
and the journey
pressed on for
each one of us
we turned at
our own destiny
and some of us
died soon after
while others of
us still continue
to get up
in the morning
just as we
did 25 years ago
and still we
keep sailing along…
