The love boat

The Love boat


Love is such a tossed about word
‘I love you’ we say
But often we neglect to see
We have forgotten to truly care
A rough word written or spoken
Can often break a heart
Have we become so calloused 
Like the barnacled hull of a ship
Desensitized to understand 
It’s the little things that cause us 
A smooth or a rough sail
Or a total wreck
Maybe to have a scrapping down 
We’ll sail smoother 
On our great ocean voyage
Even when the waves swell
And almost swallow us whole
If we are smoother bottomed
Our stormy ride will not leave us 
Quite the shipwreck

    Hi Brenda, your voyage sounds like one I could be on; smooth sailing would be great. The idea is irrisistable! :)

    Thanks, Bren, for your kind words. The love boat - I think you are right about the barnacled hulls and our need to keep an even keel. Great read! I thank God He's there for that. Love, Maureen
