To the Sunset

48D91E73-D70C-44E2-96EA-39485D023130

The boats pass me by,

I don’t know

where they go and why,

but I stand looking on

hoping they’ll take me along –

to my destiny that’s long drawn,

also is allusive and withholds –

my dreams that are manifold.

 

All I want is a meaningful life,

not merely to survive,

and to leave footprints behind

that may cushion and guide

hearts such as mine –

that face the burdens of life,

without the strength I’ve imbibed

out of the struggles and strife:

in my life that ought to be sublime

for the blessings I’ve been born with.

 

Yet my destiny slips me by

even as I harness all the winds

to stay afloat, over those tides I stride –

like the boats that slip and slide,

creating ripples in the picture of my life:

but are unable to find a steady spot

where I can anchor my soul,

and steadily emit the orange glow

from all the sun I’ve soaked;

that through bridges manifold

I’ve diligently crossed 

in the prime of my life,

to give me a steady shine

when my sunset years dawn,

so as to guide my path lifelong.
