I'm A Boat




I'm a boat,
You are the water,
My life is the wind that keeps me afloat
And sail cross the border.
.
You allow me to keep going
to erase life’s pain,
Although knowing
that we may lose each other again.
.
The future is unknown,
Yet you refuse to frown,
You sing me the most beautiful song
while I’m stuck and alone.
.
Like daughter,
Like father,
You are the water
that supports me to go further.

What a bond felt in each word...
Lovely, simply well written with loads of emotions spilled in form..
Has a haunting feel too at some places, and yet makes one glee of the verse..Nice!

Beautiful. The image of the boat on the water is so strong, such power in the nature of the relationship. Thank you for sharing this, Jingle.
