That fleeting moment, when two ships pass, on the turbulent seas of life.

 


I love you,


will always love you,


have always loved you.


 


I donít wish to sound


like some weirdo


lost in lala land


or dreaming of


lives past or future,


but I DO feel


as if our souls have been


entertwined in the past.


 


When first I met you,


I was sure I


had known you before.


 


I felt immediately


at ease with you


and that isnít


a thing I feel


with many people.


 


It is hard to describe


or articulate,


but you calm me,


you make me feel whole.


 


For most of my life,


I have felt empty and alone.


Since you,


there is a


sun in the sky


and joy in my heart.


 


I canít have you,


you were never


mine to claim,


all along your heart


belonged to another.


 


I too,


belong to another.


I am not mine to give,


although I know


that makes no sense


to anyone but me.


 


We are akin


to two ships passing


on turbulent seas,


lifelines went out


and we moored together


for comfort and relief


from the angry sea


of life.


Our moorings


have been released


and again,


we cast ourselves


out to sea.


 


As the pitch


and roll of


life without you


once again turns


my stomach,


I look to you


and see you


fading away


into the horizon.


 


I wish you well


on your journey


and wave a sad


farewell.


 


My life is complete,


just at having been


awarded the honor


of knowing you,


my soul is complete


for the joy of


loving you.


 


As I sail


the seas of life,


always


you will be


missed,


you will always


be loved.


 


Go


into that gorgeous sunset,


live a life


of happiness


and joys untold.


 


I pray for you


a safe


and calm journey


and wish for


your sails to unfurl


in gentle breezes.


 


I pray


no rocks scrape


your hull


and that you


never stumble on


shallow or angry waters.


I wish for you


the serenity of


the sunset


and the


glorious beauty


of the sunrise.

She must have been incredible Jeff. This write reads like a paean to momentary pleasure/or, to the sensual works of imagination.

A short love affair described as a two ships in a storm. Vivid imagination. Victor
