As ropes pulled on old wood
giving way to canvas flaps
the wind folded, and filled
The ship leaned
to the port side.
And she held his hand, and the railing with the other,
she thought there was such strength
in his heart, as her straw hat blew off, and fell
into the water, he didn’t miss a beat
with his baseball cap.
Smiling, he leaned over and kissed her lips
whispering “My reward?”.
as the ship sliced the waves,
As he looked forward, she said,
“Go ahead sweetheart….I love to watch you in the wind…”
So as the man of her dreams stood in the bow
with his arms extended,
conquering worlds with his spirit free,
a smile appeared, covering her face.
what trusting was now,
and she was no longer afraid,
