The Unsteady Horizon Rocking Me

The unsteady horizon rocking me
I’m doing my best to remain upright
Another desert soul back to sea
Taking steps to catch my fall tonight
My eyes are exhausted & can’t open
Cautiously alert for what’s out there
Wished & prayed never return again
The ocean’s been a dangling nightmare

Kissing Three Wee Heads

Kissing three wee heads
Sleep well now, lasses
Fatherhood softened my heart
Praying now, as I wipe my glasses
Lord, I ask you desperately
Please watch over my humble home
Protect & care for these beauties
Before the mast I’m forced to roam

Her Beauty Attracts Boys Like Flies

  

Her beauty attracts boys like flies
But that’s what they are – mere flies
With no substance at all
She needs something more
To match her depths & multi-facetted being
I pray that one day
God will create such a man
Worthy of such a woman
